Rochester Hills, Michigan (PRWEB) September 13, 2013
Historically, consumers of midwifery services seemed to be those with little money, no insurance, or living in rural areas. Midwives were considered to be practitioners with less education but plenty of experience. Today, midwives are Masters prepared nurses and midwifery services are in demand by those seeking a personal and natural labor and birthing experience. Crittenton Hospital in Rochester Hills, Michigan is just one of many hospital systems 'latching-on' to the demand for midwifery services and have embraced midwifery services.
Tracie Achrem and Chris Borowski, the Certified Nurse Midwives (CNMs) of Women's Excellence in Midwifery, are pleased to join in a partnership with Crittenton Hospital to provide a personalized prenatal and labor and delivery care experience that women are looking for in the safety of the hospital setting. The CNMs have two locations in Oakland County where they are currently serving patients, at their main center in Lake Orion and at their satellite center in Clarkston. "Midwifery services in the hospital setting is a perfect marriage between the intimate labor and delivery experience that so many families want today and the safety features offered in the hospital setting", states Borowski.
Unlike, large ob/gyn practices with multiple physicians, Women's Excellence in Midwifery is staffed only by Achrem and Borowski. According to Achrem, "Our patients have the advantage of seeing Chris or I throughout their prenatal care. During that time, we develop these amazing relationships with our patients based upon trust. This trust is essential during the labor and delivery process especially for those who want to do it as naturally as possible. We are their coach and confidant. We know them inside and out". The midwives are 'backed-up' by their Women's Excellence physician counterparts. 'You can never be too careful when it comes to bringing a new life safely into this world. Safety is always first and we have expert physician help readily available to us if a delivery does not go as planned", added Borowski.
While most people define 'natural childbirth' as childbirth without pain relievers, Achrem and Borowski are not opposed to pain reflief options during labor such as an epidural. 'We don't take pain relief options off the table for our patients. The main purpose of our services is to provide the best personalized care possible for our patients in the safest way", said Achrem.
