Understanding the Role of a Midwife: Beyond Childbirth

At Root to Rise Wellness Center, we are privileged to have Jennifer Share as our midwife. Many people associate midwives solely with childbirth, but the role of a midwife extends far beyond that. In this blog post, we’ll explore what a midwife truly is and how Jennifer supports women in all phases of life.

Defining a Midwife: “With Women”

The term “midwife” originates from the Old English words “mid” and “wif,” which together mean “with women.” While midwives do indeed play a crucial role in childbirth, their expertise goes beyond labor and delivery. Jennifer’s practice as a midwife revolves around providing care and support to women from puberty through menopause.

Whole Person Wellness: Jennifer’s Approach

Jennifer firmly believes in the concept of whole person wellness. This holistic approach considers not only physical health but also factors such as stress levels, nutrition, and activity. It acknowledges that a person’s well-being is interconnected and multifaceted.

As a midwife, Jennifer collaborates with her patients to create comprehensive wellness plans that address their individual needs. These plans are tailored to where a woman is in her life journey, whether it’s fertility planning, fertility control, or navigating the transitions of perimenopause and menopause.

Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement

In her practice, Jennifer also partners with a trusted company that specializes in bio-identical hormone replacements. These hormones are laboratory-made and designed to be chemically similar to the hormones naturally produced in a woman’s body. They are derived from plant steroids found in soy and wild yams.

Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy can be a valuable option for women experiencing hormonal imbalances during various stages of life. Jennifer’s expertise in this area allows her to provide personalized guidance and support to her patients.

Jennifer’s Unique Specialty

Jennifer’s role as a midwife encompasses more than just medical care. She excels at looking at the bigger picture of her patients’ lives and health factors. By considering the holistic well-being of each individual, she empowers women to lead healthier, more balanced lives.

In conclusion, a midwife is not limited to childbirth; they are dedicated professionals who provide comprehensive care and support to women throughout their entire lives. Jennifer Share’s commitment to whole person wellness make her a valuable asset to the Root to Rise Wellness Center team. Whether you’re in need of guidance for fertility, hormonal balance, or general well-being, Jennifer is here to support you on your unique journey to optimal health and wellness.
