Colorado Homebirth & Pregnancy Care Services
My goal as a midwife is to provide an empowering experience that leaves each family confident that they had all the necessary information they needed to make the choices that were best for them. I use an evidence-based approach to provide care for low-risk healthy pregnancies, offering all available screenings, tests, and resources.
Care for your pregnancy includes regular visits with your midwife including a home visit around your 36th week of pregnancy.
Visits range anywhere from 45-60 minutes leaving ample time to discuss any questions you have involving your care.
These visits provide a space to monitor the well-being of you and your baby, discuss available testing, and provide a setting for us to become familiar with each other and build a relationship.
If any factor of your pregnancy strays from normal, I do not hesitate to consult with the appropriate care provider and work with you to build a plan.
With prenatal care, you can expect:
- individualized and comfortable care
- relevant information and support
- time to voice any questions and concerns
- discussion to evaluate expectations and pregnancy desires
- routine risk assessment including blood pressure monitoring, heartbeat checks, and health briefing
- 24/7 on-call access to your midwife
- full support for YOUR decisions and goals for a birth with YOU in mind.
I am available anytime day or night to support you during the months leading to the birth. Do not hesitate to call me at any point if there are any concerns, questions, or complications that arise.
I bring all the necessary equipment to your home to facilitate a healthy birth and prepare a transport plan in case a change in birth setting becomes necessary.
A trained midwife assistant accompanies me to each birth and I make all efforts to allow you to meet the assistant before your birth.
After the birth, we typically stay for the first 4 hours postpartum to monitor both mother and baby’s transition, perform a newborn exam, and perform any immediately needed follow up care.
Office visits are scheduled for 2 weeks and 6-8weeks after birth, with additional visits available as needed.
I provide both postpartum and newborn care while referring to other care providers as necessary. Breastfeeding support is provided both at the birth and throughout the postpartum and all recommended well-woman tests are offered at the competition of care.
These series of visits allow me to support you and your family during the postpartum period and provide in-depth care to the whole family.
