Excellence in Midwifery Care

How do we provide be the best care possible?

By applying mindfulness techniques and thoughtful reflection we can intentionally explore how we provide care, our roles and feelings when we provide care, and how each individual responds to our care. We can consider each of the outcomes through the lens of the person's health, self-image, and community.

We all have limitations in our practice and our lives. And we bring our personal and professional selves to the care we provide. Be being mindful of how we each interact as individuals, we can adapt to the mutitude of factors that affect each individual and work in partnership to provide the best care for that person. 

One of the challenges of midwifery is to keep in mind what's important to each individual as we develop credible ways to provide excellence in midwifery care.

In this way, we can bring the Quality Improvement process to life in way that is meaningful and dynamic. This guides us to better meet women's needs as we circle back time and again to our primary priority: care that is valued by our clients, meets the needs they have identified, and works for them within the context of their lives.
