Excellence in Midwifery Care

How do we provide be the best care possible? We can apply mindfulness techniques and use thoughtful reflection to intentionally explore how we provide care, our role and feelings when providing care, and the individual's response and outcomes to that care. We all have limitations in our practice and our lives. We bring these personal and professional factors to the care we provide, and must manage or adapt to the mutitude of factors inherent in the practice setting and with each individual we work in partnership with to provide care.

One of the challenges of midwifery is to keep in mind what's important to each individual and those we serve 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 women and meets their self-identified needs in the context of their lives.
