Prenatal Care​

Pregnancy is a journey of transformation — a time when your life is filled with the gentle stirrings of new beginnings. As your midwife, I’m here to walk beside you on this path, offering a nurturing hand and a listening ear. It’s a time for us to grow together, building a bond of trust that will bloom beautifully into the moment you hold your baby for the first time.

Our visits are more than check-ups; they’re warm chats where we celebrate the little milestones and navigate the changes with ease and understanding. We’ll talk about nutrition, wellness, and any little question you might have — all in simple, easy-to-understand conversations. Think of me not just as a caregiver, but as a trusted companion who believes in the strength and natural grace of your body’s wisdom in childbirth.

Our shared goal is to make sure you feel informed, cared for, and empowered, so that when the day comes, you step into motherhood feeling confident and supported. With every gentle heartbeat and every fluttering kick, know that you’re surrounded by care that’s as natural as the process of life itself.

Prenatal Visits

  • Once a month from your first visit until 28 weeks of pregnancy
  • Every two weeks from 28 weeks to 36 weeks of pregnancy
  • Weekly from 36 weeks until the birth of your baby

Loved ones are always a welcome part of prenatal visits, should you wish for their support and presence.

Embracing a holistic approach to health, I focus on nurturing the whole self with good nutrition, hydration, movement, and emotional well-being, aiming to address the root of health concerns holistically.

Care During Labor and Delivery

In the cozy sanctuary of your own home, surrounded by love and familiar comforts, we’ll welcome your baby together.

We will support you in creating the personalized birth experience you desire. Our attentive midwifery team will attend the birth once active labor begins or earlier, if needed. Prior to active labor we will be in touch with you via mobile. 

Once we arrive at your home for your birth, we will monitor the health of you and your baby by checking vital signs, fetal heart tones, confirming fetal position, monitoring nourishment, hydration, and output, and cervical dilation checks when necessary or desired.  To the extent that it is deemed safe, you may give birth in the position and place of your choice, and you may determine the level of our involvement in the birth.

Although most home births can occur spontaneously and proceed best without intervention. As midwives, we are there to offer guidance, assistance, and midwifery support as needed, such as preventing perineal tears or managing a shoulder dystocia.

On occasion, complications can arise during birth in any setting, even in low risk situations. We carry emergency equipment, including oxygen and resuscitation equipment, hemorrhage medications, and IV supplies, so we can respond to and appropriately manage a complication should one occur.

If needed, we can start an IV, suture a tear, and perform resuscitation.  If a complication develops that would be most safely managed within a hospital setting, we will recommend transport and accompany you throughout the birth as planned.

After the baby is born, we will be responsible for checking the newborn’s condition, monitoring you and the birth of the placenta, amount of blood loss, and checking the placenta.  Delayed cord camping is our standard of care, aligning with our holistic approach to childbirth and family wellness.

In the early postpartum, we will perform a newborn exam and procedures if desired, and continue monitoring the health of you and your baby, ensuring the highest standards of postpartum care. We will remain for 2 to 3 hours after the birth, ensuring that you have eaten, your baby has successfully breastfed, and you are both comfortably settled and stable.

Our care reflects the dedicated attention of a holistic and attentive midwifery team, ensuring you and your baby receive the best care in the comfort of your home.

What can I expect during labor?
