What we do
At Birth, Babies and Beyond, we offer comprehensive and personalized midwifery care during the prenatal period. Our prenatal visits last at least one hour ensuring that we build a strong trusting relationship prior to your labor. We offer prenatal visits once a month until you reach 32 weeks in your pregnancy. We will then see you once every two weeks until 36 weeks, and then once a week until you go into labor. Nutritional counseling will be included as well as remedies and suggestions for physical changes and common complaints during pregnancy. We will also discuss procedures or tests that are regularly done during pregnancy and offer pregnancy related lab testing.We offer 24 hour on call support throughout your care with us.
Water births are a wonderful option for many families. Laboring in the warm water can be a soothing form of pain relief and can also be a peaceful transition for the birth as the baby moves from “water to water.” If desired we will bring a tub for you to use at no extra charge. Having the option of water is lovely whether you choose to give birth in the tub or just decide to labor in it.
We will continue care by coming to your house in the postpartum period, visiting for about an hour for each visit, and spending time with you until all of your questions are answered. We will see you after the birth at one day (approximately 24 hours), three days, one week, three weeks, all in the comfort of your own home. We will see you for your six week visit in our office, which includes a full annual exam and birth control services if desired.
