While planning your natural birth at home, prenatal visits in your home or our office are encouraged during the developmental stages of your baby. We take the time to address your physical and emotional needs to ensure that your pregnancy is healthy and low risk. Services during your visit can include urine assessments, blood pressure testing, nutritional counseling, and fetal heart measurements.
We suggest that you notify your midwife on call as soon as you've gone into labor. Natural childbirth at home means you will experience the freedom to move around as needed, eat what you'd like when you'd like, and relax in whatever way feels good for your body. The combination of support and comfort from your family and our team, is beneficial in facilitating your birth.
To ensure that you receive the best possible care for you and your newborn baby, our team will stay in close contact with you after your birth to provide support, physical exams, assist with breastfeeding, and answer any questions you may have. All of these services can be provided to you in the comfort of your home for up to 1 month. Newborn records will be transferred to the pediatric provider for ongoing health care.
