Saint Louis Midwife

St. Louis Midwife —The Birth and Wellness Center

Our mission here at Professionals in OBGYN has always been to take into account a woman’s holistic needs and priorities in childbirth as well as general gynecology care. Being in tune with your physical and emotional signals is a large part of the equation of female reproductive health and therefore something we weave into our entire philosophy, as well as our St. Louis Midwife service.

It was a natural decision to become a fully-fledged partner, and medical director of the leading Saint Louis midwife center, the Birth and Wellness Center, on whose staff our own Dr. Jeffrey Mormol, OBGYN serves. The center is a Commission for Accreditation of Birth Centers endorsed facility offering a safe, calm and beautiful setting to give birth naturally, as millions of women have done throughout history. Through our St. Louis midwife center, we are able to a range of holistic natural childbirth programs and options, including the following:

Birth at Home, Midwife Center or Hospital

Our purpose-built birthing suites are designed to provide a calm, safe and pleasant environment where you can give birth with as little stress as possible. However, as we understand that personal preferences do vary, your St. Louis midwife can also assist you in giving birth at home, provided your pregnancy is without complications. Of course, with challenging births, having Dr. Mormol on hand and access to Saint Louis area hospitals is comforting.

Water Birth

Research has shown that immersion in the gentle caress of water during childbirth reduces stress, making birth easier for many women. To ensure the safest, most comfortable environment, our O’Fallon and St. Louis water birth facilities provide spacious, built-in birthing tubs as well as the option to rent your own preferred birthing pool. Our staff have as much as 20 years experience in water births in St. Louis and will ensure a safe, natural experience

Breastfeeding Training in St. Louis

Breastfeeding Support

The bond between Mother and child is established and sustained through the physical and emotionally beneficial process of breastfeeding. Its importance during baby’s first weeks and months cannot be overstated. Therefore our midwives and our own Internationally Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) are on hand to assist you in initiating breastfeeding the moment your new baby is ready—usually within one hour of birth. We also offer classes and consultations to new mothers who are breastfeeding.

If a Saint Louis midwife is something you would like to consider for your upcoming birth, we would be happy for you to tour the Birth & Wellness Center facility and meet the midwives. To arrange this, please contact the Birth & Wellness Center directly.
