If you look up “midwife” in a dictionary, you’ll find it defined as a person trained to assist in childbirth. For those who welcome midwives into their lives, and for the midwives themselves, it means so much more than that.
At Athens Regional Midwifery Practice, it means someone to learn from, lean on and trust. Our nurse-midwives offer knowledge, a caring relationship, encouragement and support for the whole family throughout a pregnancy and birth. The bond formed is beautiful and appreciated beyond words, time and time again.
In fact, over the past month, the Athens Regional Nurse-Midwives have touched more pregnant bellies than ever before in their 36-year history. They cannot express how grateful they are that so many families have wanted the midwives to help guide them through pregnancy and delivery. Just like the amazing family photo above shows, our team’s happiness and care is evident as a mother is empowered and stays in control of her child’s birth. She is confident. She is glowing.
The midwives would like to thank the many families in this community who support what they do and they look forward to welcoming more of you into their family!
