Family-Centered Maternity Care

Bonita Katz, IAT, ICCE, ICD

The International Childbirth Education Association (ICEA) maintains that family-centered maternity care is the foundation on which normal physiologic maternity care resides. Further, family-centered maternity care may be carried out in any birth setting: home, birth center, hospital, or even in emergency situations. In short, family-centered maternity care honors the family unit by supporting its physical and psychosocial development with evidence-based, individualized care.
