Dr. DiCampli describes a midwife and explains if it is safe to have a midwife deliver your baby.

Dr. DiCampli:
I am Dr. Jesika DiCampli and I am a certified professional midwife and naturopathic physician in the state of Arizona.

A midwife is a healthcare provider who establishes care for women in the prenatal period during labor and delivery and following the delivery in postpartum care. Midwives offer alternatives to an in-hospital setting of birth and delivery in a more natural way.

It’s very safe. It’s optimal for a woman who is healthy and obviously, you know, at home you are not going to be doing any heroic measures or any high-risk pregnancy type deliveries. It’s just for the standard healthy woman with one baby in a non-breach position.
