Our Services
Free Consulatation

Prospective clients are encouraged to schedule a free one hour consultation to discuss their plans and meet with a midwife to see if we would work well together.

On-Call Service

We are available by phone or text around the clock for labor or other urgent needs.

Routine Prenatal Care

Prenatal visits once monthly until 32 weeks, every two weeks until 36 weeks and then weekly until birth.

Routine labs and most additional testing can be done in the office.

Additional referrals to other providers will be provided as needed.

Home Birth

Clients planning a home birth will receive a prenatal home visit at approximately 36-37 weeks.

A home birth kit containing necessary supplies, including towels and bed linens, will be delivered to your home at your home visit.  

We are happy to attend water births and loaner pools are usually available (not guaranteed). Referrals for rental or purchase are available upon request.

Services include attendance during your labor, delivery, and immediate postpartum.  A newborn exam is conducted during this time.
