Homebirth

We work with all family types providing comprehensive care through pregnancy, labor, birth and postpartum. Seeing one care provider through these many weeks ensures that we can build trust, build safety through continuity, and build satisfaction in your care. Your homebirth care will include:

  • Hour long appointments are in the comfort of your home
  • Monitoring baby’s growth at every appointment
  • Providing you with information and resources for you and your family to make informed choices
  • We will discuss your questions and concerns at each appointment and we are available by phone, text or email for anything between appointments
  • All routine lab work can be done during appointments, and we can provide referrals for ultrasounds or medical consultations as needed (lab and ultrasound fees are paid for through insurance separately from our fee)
  • We are on-call and stay in the area for you during your due window of 37-42 weeks
  • During labor, we will come to your home to support you through the process and will monitor you and baby to ensure that everyone is coping well
  • In the event that you may need to transfer to the hospital for personal or medical reasons we will accompany you there and continue in a support person role
  • Postpartum care for you and your baby together then continues in your home over 6 appointments or more, as detailed below

Words cannot express my gratitude and appreciation to your work during the whole process of my prenatal and postpartum time. You are not only a wonderful, skilled midwife but also have this gentle and healing energy which helped to ease my anxiety about birth. Because of you, my birth experience was beautiful and memorable. -RF
