2. Midwives Have Lower C-Section Rates

Because midwives are open and honest with you about the risks of c-sections and scheduling early births, there are far less c-sections that take place with the patients of midwives. As you may know, midwives are not equipped with the ability to give c-sections, and in the event of an emergency, they must turn you over to a doctor for a c-section. However, these days, many doctors are more quickly and easily persuaded to induce delivery early via c-section than a midwife. She knows the risks of delivering a baby too early, realizing that every day in the womb is much better for your baby's well-being.
