Our Care

Comprehensive Midwifery Care

Midwifery Services are designed to meet your needs in birth. I have various packages with a sliding scale to accommodate your financial needs. I look forward to hearing from you soon. Please message me on our wanna chat tab.

Prenatal Care

For the best health of the mother and baby, we recommend prenatal visits each month for the first six months, twice a week for the seventh and eighth month, and every week in the ninth month.  We do realize that many families may choose to not have that many visits.  Our fee includes six visits because we really want you to at least have that many.  The visits covered by your fee can be used at the office of any of the doctors or midwives listed below.

Labor and Delivery

You have the option to deliver at your own home or to come to our home-like birth center.  We offer water births in both situations.  Discuss with us if you are a good candidate for a water birth.  We are very family-oriented and let the family and laboring mom set the pace for labor and delivery.  

Postpartum Care

We require a 1-3 day visit in your home, at which time we will draw blood for the newborn screening, check the baby’s hearing, and do a check-up on the baby to make sure the baby is nursing well, has not lost too much weight and is not very yellow (jaundiced).  We will ensure that the mother is recovering well and has no signs of infection.  The other postpartum visits are recommended: 1-2 weeks, depending on the number of babies and breastfeeding counseling needs, 3-4 weeks, and a 6-week visit.  No one is limited on the number of postpartum visits.  We are here for the family during this transition time and will be of help where we can. 

Newborn Care

Newborn care follows the same recommendations as the postpartum care for our moms.  At the 24-hour visit, we check the newborn for weight loss, jaundice, latch, and overall wellness.  We will also perform the following health screens:  Newborn metabolic screen (heal poke, PKU test), Hearing screen, and the congenital heart defect screen.  We also would like to ensure we are checking for weight regain at two weeks.  All other visits follow regular newborn care.
