Adrian Goblisch started this petition to Allina Health

Increase women’s health care options in the north metro community of Minnesota by petitioning for Allina Health to expand their midwifery practice to Mercy Hospital. 

Why midwives?

Because we believe that every person has a right to:

Equitable, ethical, accessible quality health care that promotes healing and health


Health care that respects human dignity, individuality and diversity among groups


Complete and accurate information to make informed health care decisions


Self-determination and active participation in health care decisions


Involvement of a woman's designated family members, to the extent desired, in all health care experiences

 


We believe the best model of health care for a woman and her family:

Promotes a continuous and compassionate partnership


Acknowledges a person's life experiences and knowledge


Includes individualized methods of care and healing guided by the best evidence available


Involves therapeutic use of human presence and skillful communication

 

 

We honor the normalcy of women's lifecycle events. We believe in:

Watchful waiting and non-intervention in normal processes


Appropriate use of interventions and technology for current or potential health problems


Consultation, collaboration and referral with other members of the health care team as needed to provide optimal health care

 

 

We affirm that midwifery care incorporates these qualities and that women's health care needs are well-served through midwifery care.

 

Finally, we value formal education, lifelong individual learning, and the development and application of research to guide ethical and competent midwifery practice. These beliefs and values provide the foundation for commitment to individual and collective leadership at the community, state, national and international level to improve the health of women and their families worldwide.
