When pregnancy and birth progress normally, as is the case for the majority of pregnant people, we provide all care independently. We are highly trained in recognizing signs of complications, and when they do arise, we collaborate with our consulting obstetricians.
We pride ourselves in providing ample time during prenatal visits to get to know our clients, answer questions, involve partners and siblings, and focus on the emotional as well as physical aspects of growing a healthy baby.
During the labor and birth experience, we provide personalized, family-centered care and hands-on labor support. Many pregnant people who desire “natural” childbirth seek out midwifery care, and we are enthusiastic and skilled at giving the support and encouragement they need to give birth without medications.
We also care for many clients in labor who plan to use pain medications or epidural anesthesia during labor. We support each person’s informed choices and our goal is to help each them have the type of birth experience they desire.
We support and educate families about breastfeeding; we want those who chose to breastfeed their babies be successful.
We offer the vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC) option, water birth and we are doula-friendly.
