The relationship between a midwife and an expectant mother can make your birthing process a peaceful and empowering experience. This is why the licensed midwives at the SCV Birth Center strive to personally connect with each and every mother and family.

You want the trusted professionals and supportive birth team that you connect with alongside you for your baby’s journey to earth side. The strong bond that is forged while preparing for birth is largely based on the midwife’s ability to instill confidence in the mother and provide emotional support, along with the reassurance that a licensed midwife brings to the table. We are passionate about seeing all women empowered to birth naturally and safely. Renee recently travelled to a clinic in Haiti where she empowered women through her passion for midwifery.

“Owner of SCV Birth Center Travels to Haiti to Donate [Licensed] Midwife Services Renee Sicignano of the SCV Birth Center recently worked with MamaBabyHaiti – a non-profit birth center and health clinic located in Northern Haiti – to donate her services to the women of the struggling nation. MamaBabyHaiti provides a safe place for Haitian women to receive compassionate and respectful free prenatal, birth, postpartum and gynecological care at the hands of skilled Haitian midwives. That’s especially important because Haiti has the highest infant and maternal mortality rate in the Western Hemisphere. “It is my core belief that no woman or child should ever die because of where they live,” says Renee Sicignano… MamaBabyHaiti, with the help of midwives like Renee, is saving lives every single day.” –InsideSCV

“I had the honor of working alongside the Haitian midwives, attending 10 births in seven days. No matter the language barrier – they speaking only Haitian Creole and me, only English, I quickly learned birth and midwifery crosses all language barriers. All mothers need compassion in labor and all midwives know intuitively how to give that CARE. I am continually inspired when I go to Haiti – this being my third time… I’m already planning my next trip!” –Renee (written originally for InsideSCV)

Compassionate care and an emotional connection combined with training and knowledge – your licensed midwife can provide both to support you and your baby through prenatal care, natural birth and postpartum care.
