MIDWIFERY
MIDWIFERY MODEL OF CARE

I believe that regular prenatal visits that nurture a trusting relationship are vital to the birthing process. In order to have a trusting relationship, we each need to be honest and open in our communication. That is one of the reasons I will meet with you monthly for prenatal visits for the first 2 trimesters and then bi-weekly from 28-36 weeks and weekly from 36 weeks until birth, asking for consent through the labor and birthing process, and maintaining a relationship through the first 6 weeks postpartum and sometimes beyond depending on the situation. See the breakdown of your care below.
