Babies have the strength to be born.  That’s why a natural birth is the best way.  
For babies, the first sense of achievement will become confidence for life.

Home Birth Midwifery care

     Midwives care for you throughout your whole pregnancy, labor, birth and the postpartum!  This is called continuity of care. Through your pregnancy & birth journey, we learn about each other and build a trusting bond.  We understand that birth is a normal life event and trust the body's physiological process.  This has been found to decrease labor time as well as any unnecessary interventions.  We also understand the importance of care and attending to the needs for women after giving birth and to your newborn during the first six weeks.  We often come to your home for your prenatal appointments and ask for your partner to attend with you.  All care for your labor, birth and the postpartum is also at your home!
