Home Birth

Giving birth at home is as old as humankind. Only in the last century has birth been made a medical event. With great prenatal care from an out-of-hospital trained midwife, a healthy, active pregnancy and a good foundation of support, families can safely and comfortably welcome their newest member to the world in the comfort of a loving home. Learn more...

 
Prenatal Care

A healthy birth begins with great prenatal care, therefore choosing the proper caregiver sets the foundation for achieving the birth you desire. Prenatal visits with your chosen midwife are instrumental in teaching you how to prepare for the big day. Learn more...

 

Postpartum Care​

Natural birth doesn't necessarily end when the baby is placed into mama's arms. Your midwife will continue to be at your service in the first couple of months to assist with the transition to parenthood. Breastfeeding, diapering, and anything else that the newly expanded family has questions about are part of this service that will extend throughout the first 6 weeks of life and beyond. Learn more...

 

Doula Services

Every mother planning a hospital birth should hire a doula to help the expecting family navigate the medical model of care. Having a familiar face and a knowledgeable labor and birth assistant at births is proven to improve outcomes for mothers and babies. Learn more...

 

VBAC Assistance​

It is important for mothers who have had a birth by Cesarean to understand that their bodies are capable of giving birth vaginally. Having a doula help prepare you prenatally and attend you during labor and birth increases the likelihood of giving birth vaginally.  Learn more...

Childbirth Education Classes​

Belly Henna

For something a little less permanent, but will allow for a fun, relaxing time, belly henna is offered to enhance the beautiful glow that mums-to-be naturally have. While in labor, the mama can focus on the lovely patterns on her belly. Learn more...
