Question about CRUD between Mongodb and Swift

Is it possible that we can implement CRUD operation in swift to MongdoDB directly without using any rest api ? I heard about swiftMongoDB library, it seems like able to run the CRUD directly to db without rest api. So i wonder what's the pros using an API as a bridge to passing data.
