Mission Statement

IMG_1286Midwifery Care NYC believes in the natural progressions of life-cycle events. Our mission is to provide optimal, home-based health care to persons of all backgrounds. We practice watchfulness, patience, and non-intervention in the normal processes of home birth and all other aspects of gynecological care. Where appropriate, the use of intervention and technology for existing or potential health problems is only undertaken after consultation and collaboration with all members of the healthcare team as well as with our clients and their trusted family members.

Our model of healthcare promotes a continuous and compassionate partnership between client and midwife and both acknowledges and respects a person’s life experiences and preferences. We care and advocate for patients with nonconforming gender identities and expressions. Our goal is to provide care in a manner that affirms patients’ gender identities and reduces the distress of gender dysphoria.

MCNYC offers personalized care, guidance, and healing through our understanding of—and expertise in—the best practices available. We believe that it is important to continue to evolve, both as a practice and practitioners. MCNYC’s evidence-based approach requires:

  • The informed choice of the client/patient
  • Skill and knowledge of the provider
  • Adequately studied numbers with appropriate levels of recommendations

We affirm that MCNYC incorporates these qualities and that people’s healthcare needs will always be well-served with us.

We believe that every person and their support group has a right to a home birth and to quality healthcare that promotes healing and:

  • Respects human dignity, individuality, and diversity
  • Provides complete and accurate information
  • Ensures full involvement and active participation
  • Enables self-determination in all decisions

Gigi’s Birth Story

Dear little one, I woke up on Tuesday, May 8th at 4:15am. I got up quietly as I didn’t want to wake your Baba or your brother, Nash. By the time I got to the bathroom, I was having a pressure wave. It was 4:17am and I was 41 weeks along with you.
