Is it okay to have a midwife for a high risk pregnancy?

Is it okay to have a midwife for a high risk pregnancy?

Nope: It's usually beyond their scope of practice & depending what specific high-risk condition you have, you should see either a mfm or an OB experienced in your care.

It works well for our practice. ...Read more
