As your home birth midwives, we provide complete prenatal, birth and postpartum care. On call 24/7, we are available to answer questions, safely guide you through the intimate journey of pregnancy and birth, and celebrate with you as you welcome your child into the world. If you are interested, we also can provide complementary placenta encapsulations. We bring a deep trust in birth and in the strength of each birthing family.
The safety of home birth comes in part from the strong relationship between midwife and client, based in trust, respect and open communication. As your midwives, we provide care founded on clinical skill and knowledge of current research and best practices. Abundant research shows that for low-risk pregnancies, birthing at home with midwives is a safe option.
We deeply respect the autonomy of each birthing person and value their right to make choices regarding all aspects of their life. We also value the oneness of clients and their unborn children and the ability of clients to nurture their pregnancies and make choices for themselves and their babies. We strive to offer care rooted in shared decision making, informed choice, and empowerment of the birthing family.
Most people in labor enjoy getting in the birth tub at some point, whether or not they end up choosing to birth in it.
Birth tubs are great for relaxing all your muscles including your uterus. Many people are attracted to the idea of having another tool to help cope during labor.
We lend a birth tub to all clients desiring the option for a water birth.
Monitrice care is kind of a hybrid between having home midwifery care and a hospital birth. We would see you for the same holistic prenatal and postpartum care as we would if you were planning a home birth but after laboring at home for as long as you feel comfortable, we would transfer to the hospital for the birth. While laboring at home we will still provide medical midwifery care such as monitoring baby's heart tones, doing cervical checks and checking your vital signs.
