Protect choice in birth: Save Our Midwives!
Effective July 1, 2021: Seven Hills Women's Health Center has terminated all midwives serving the West Fork location eliminating access to midwifery care on the west side of Cincinnati. This is a significant loss to the community, leaving families with fewer choice for reproductive care. As a result there is no longer an option for midwifery care for deliveries at Mercy West hospital.
Midwives offer excellent evidence-based care, especially for low-risk pregnancies. Midwives excel at providing low-intervention care, and consistently improve both birth outcomes and patient satisfaction.
Seven Hills claims that they are "committed to providing compassionate care that empowers you to live a healthy rewarding life." However, their actions have now left dozens of patients nearing their due dates without their healthcare team and eliminated midwifery care for the west side. It is evident that profit is a bigger priority than patient care.
Birthing people and families deserve choices in healthcare. We want & need midwives in our community!
