THE AMENA IDIR MIDWIFERY EXPERIENCE

Beyond more is more, we grow with the flow of each person. We partner with you to create an experience that becomes a pivotal moment in your life. We encourage the elevation of your health and your mindset through education and (w)holistic care. To do this, we must meet you where you are, the whole you. We become family and in a very subtle gentle way, you are empowered to become your highest self which is your truest self. With this mindset, you can do anything. You can birth a baby and you may find yourself rebirthing you. The innergy of birth provides life altering lessons and has a way of growing us all. We use national standards for maternal care as a guide and AIM to provide care far beyond those standards.   

our
approach

midwifery care

Midwife means "with woman." It is a profession that has been in existence since the beginning of time. Certified Nurse-Midwives (CNM) provide primary care to women across their lifespan. As a CNM service, we are able to provide well person exams including Pap Smears, as well as well as STI/STD, UTI, and discharge management.. Caring for individuals during their pregnancies, labor and birth is also our specialty. Midwives are unique in holding a judgement free space. We combine art, knowledge and spirit in our practice providing safe and mindful care. 

Birth began in the home with traditional midwives.With time, more knowledge and technology has developed identifying and treating previous dangers that were seen in earlier times. The birth setting has also shifted with time due to politics and the status of marginalized communities. Even with the test of time, home birth is a safe option for low risk pregnant individuals to give birth within the intimacy of their home with a trained, licensed, and certified professional. The advancements in prenatal care and technology have created safety for high risk pregnancies within the hospital setting and continue to be a valuable asset to the community.
