Certified Professional Midwife Services
Pregnancy is a special time in a woman and family's life. Three Rivers Birth Services is here to help you explore all the options that will contribute to a healthy pregnancy and safe birth. Our belief that women's bodies were made to
give birth naturally is the basis of our commitment to facilitating exceptional birth experiences for mothers in the Midlands.
Regarding her philosophy, Three Rivers' midwife Nicole Lavallee says, "The foundation of my practice is parental education and informed consent. Whereas most hospital-based practitioners dictate their patients' care, I feel there are too many important decisions to be made in which there are no clear 'best choices.' Many tests, procedures and interventions fall under this category. It is important to me that expectant parents are full participants in decisions regarding their care.
"My goal is to build a bond of mutual trust and respect prior to the onset of labor. The only things I expect of all my clients are good nutrition, conscientious exercise, continued education, that they will breastfeed and that they recognize my need to comply with SC laws and regulations in my practice of midwifery."
