Our Philosophy


The Midwifery program at Jersey Shore has developed a philosophy of care we believe is the best model of health care for women and their families.

  • Offering Hydrotherapy in the form of showers, a labor tub or water birth as alternative pain relievers
  • Believing in the use of watchful waiting and non intervention in normal processes
  • The appropriate use of interventions and technology to treat current or potential health problems
  • Consult and collaborate with other members of our health care team to continually provide optimum care
  • Encouraging patients to utilize educational methods such as hypnobirthing, bradley or other natural birthing classes to help women achieve their desired non-intervention/medicated birth
