Home Birth Midwives
My practice is strictly homebirth, with care done in the family’s home, and I intentionally keep my clientele small, in order to preserve the intimacy that is unique to midwifery care. My practice consists of myself and three very experienced, carefully chosen assistants, one of whom will accompany me to each birth. I enjoy the slower pace and individualized care that this type of practice allows, and love getting to know each of my families over the course of their care.
As a Board Certified Professional Midwife it means I need to be “with woman” so, that is what I do. I am with women in all phases of their reproductive life; from fertility help, pregnancy, birth, and postpartum care. My practice as a CPM is a natural part of my practice as a Traditional Naturopath. I provide complete care for a mother who desires to birth her baby outside of a hospital; usually this is her own home. I also provide complementary care for the mother who desires to birth her baby in a hospital setting. In this case I would provide prenatal care and doula services if she so desired. The beauty of this service is that the mother can choose how much she needs me. Typically, I begin services with a mother at the end of her first trimester when she comes to my office for her intial visit. My midwifery care includes all of the prenatal visits, the birth, and 3 postpartum visits through the baby’s first six weeks of life. For those who are interested, I will provide naturopathic consultations even longer.
