Pregnancy and childbirth involve every part of you from selecting a health care provider to choosing a name for your newborn. Avera Granite Falls Health Center provides many options for birth including the midwifery model of care. We emphasize team-based prenatal care where the physician and midwife work in partnership to provide women choices in their pregnancy and birth journey.

The midwifery model of care consists of:

  • Monitoring the physical, psychological and social well¬-being of the mother and newborn throughout the pregnancy and birth
  • Providing the mother with individualized education, counseling and prenatal care, with hands-on support during labor and birth
  • Minimizing technological interventions
  • Identifying and referring women who require obstetrical attention
