We are proud of our ethic that prioritizes women and their choices
without compromising safety and positive outcomes.
Sunrise Midwifery has participated in the national MANA Statistics Project since 2009. This project utilizes prospective data: this means that every birth outcome listed was entered at the beginning of care, rather than after the birth occurred. No cherry-picking allowed! Now there are tens of thousands of births entered from all sorts of midwives in the out-of-hospital setting.
Sunrise Midwifery also participates in the WA State OB-COAP Project. This is run by the Foundation for Healthcare Quality whose goal is to promote raising the quality of care for all patients in all settings. Thanks to MAWS’ work to provide a data link between MANAStats and OB-COAP in 2012-13, our practice’s statistics and those of all MAWS’ members are directly imported.
Here is some other information that is not reflected in the numbers below. The number of mothers in the data set is 162. No maternal or newborn deaths have occurred. Some genetic anomalies or malformations identified and diagnosed after birth include: heart, pancreas, and spina bifida occulta.
