Birth Models That Work

This chapter concerns family-centered care and discusses a “working model” for a midwifery practice adventure. With family-centered care at the hospital, moms would have a hospital experience that would more closely address the reasons they had wanted a home birth in the first place. Family-centered care looks just like whatever the parents wanted it to look like. The model is that students would undertake their own academic tutelage and preparation for the licensing exam. The New Mexico Department of Health provides the tests, written by the nurse-midwife who was the project manager for the Maternal Child Health Program in charge of regulating and licensing nurse and lay midwives. This model was to cement all the variations of normal into apprentices' tools for management and to teach them the cardinal signs for differentiating a condition requiring consult.
