Homebirth Services

I'm excited to be offering homebirth services!

This includes prenatal care once per month up until 28 weeks of pregnancy and then twice a month until your 36th week, then weekly until birth. With this service, postpartum visits are also included at 24 hours, 72 hours, 2 weeks, and 6 weeks. 

Homebirth is a safe option for giving birth if you and baby are healthy and don't wish go undergo a medical birth in a hospital setting. Homebirths are perfect for families who understand the physiology of labor and delivery is something they were born to do. It's great if you want to have an intervention free birth. 

Advantages of home birth

  • Continuity of care: Your midwife will provide prenatal visits, attend your labor and birth, and provide postpartum and newborn care. There is no questioning who will be there to welcome your baby!

  • You have autonomy: You get to say what is right for you and your baby. It is my goal as a midwife to provide you with all the education you need in order to make informed decisions. 

  • You are welcome to invite (or not invite) anyone you like to your birth.

  • Laboring in your own home where you are comfortable. Knowing that there aren't hospital-based infections lurking in every corner, having your own bed to crawl into after your birth, no uncomfortable hospital beds.

  • You are welcome and encouraged to eat and drink as you like during labor.

  • Your baby won't leave your side. This is beneficial for breastfeeding, bonding, and infant stress levels.

  • Homebirth is not messy: Any “mess” at home is most often very well contained and will be cleaned by your birth team before leaving your home. 

  • Fewer interventions: lower rates of cesarean, episiotomy, epidural, induction, etc.

  • Safety is similar to low-risk hospital births
