Free Consultation: A free one hour visit to talk about midwifery care, your birth plan, costs and concerns
Regular Visits: Routine prenatal visits take about one hour, either at your home or anywhere we meet with a bed and bathroom. It’s a full prenatal exam, discussing nutrition, natural therapies and any other concerns you have. Visits are every 4 weeks, at 32 weeks visits are every 2 weeks, at 36 weeks, weekly until birth. All visits are charted and lab information is recorded.
Classes: Prepared childbirth classes give guidance in exploring safe, drug-free natural labor support and birth options.
Labor Support: We provide labor support, caring encouragement and support while making sure everything is normal and healthy at all times.
Home Birth: We specialize in safe home birth. Laboring in our portable birth pool and water birth is also a lovely option for your birth.
After the Birth: We remain with you for four to six hours after the birth, making sure you & baby are stable, fed, and fully examined. Your recovery and baby’s progress are checked regularly with frequent visits as needed during the first weeks. The birth certificate, eye medication, Vitamin K and newborn screen test are provided.
Costs: Home birth and midwifery care are less expensive than hospital birth. Many insurance companies cover the cost of midwifery care. All costs for midwifery care are in the initial paperwork which we’ll discuss.
