Better Births Midwifery Care
I have been a midwife for over 30 years, after apprenticing with midwives and at birth centers.
My services include prenatal check-ups, labwork, herbs
for pregnancy, ultrasounds, nutritional counseling,
homebirth, water birth, postpartum care, newborn
exams, VBAC’s, and breastfeeding support.
Midwifery is my “calling” and I am honored to be able to serve birthing families. I believe that birth is a healthy, normal part of life. I encourage parents to become educated and to create their own birth experience.
I offer prenatal visits at my office and come to your home when you are in labor and do at least one home visit before your baby comes. I continue to come to your home to check on mom and baby for 2 weeks after the birth, and the 6 week visit is at the office again. In addition, I follow the mom and baby with visits at 3 months, 6 months, 9 months and 1 year
offering support for breastfeeding questions, getting baby to sleep, weaning, teething and so on.
Homebirth is a gentle way to bring babies into the world and allows parents to bond with their babies continuously after birth. This gives parents a chance to
really get to know their baby which is an important time
for mothers, fathers, and the other children in the family.
It is so important for mothers and babies to have uninterrupted time after birth in which to bond and get to know each other, that it is called "the golden hour" .
