When pregnancy and birth progress normally, as is the case for the majority of women, we provide all maternity 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 women, 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 women who desire “natural” childbirth seek out midwifery care, and we are enthusiastic and skilled at giving women the support and encouragement they need to give birth without medications.
We also care for many women who plan to use pain medications or epidural anesthesia during labor. We support each woman’s informed choices and our goal is to help each woman have the type of birth experience she desires.
We support and educate families about breastfeeding; we want women who chose to breastfeed their babies be successful.
We offer the vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC) option, water birth and we are doula-friendly.
