Prenatal visits are an opportunity for us to get to know each other and connect in a meaningful way. We also assess motherbaby and expand our client’s health knowledge. We offer prenatal visits monthly until 28 weeks, every 2-3 weeks until 36 weeks, and then weekly until labor starts.

We offer natural homebirth, waterbirth, hypnobirth and more. Our midwife team provides care in a way that honors the laboring woman and her unique personal journey to bring her baby forth.

There is utmost care to prevent tearing during childbirth.
