My role is to support and guide you through your pregnancy and birth. I provide information and education. This allows you to actively participate in your own care, make informed decisions and take responsibility for your own health. I encourage your family to participate in your care as much as you are comfortable. I have found that when your family participates in your care during the pregnancy they feel more relaxed and secure when I arrive for your birth.Prenatal Visits: Visits usually last thirty minutes. This allows plenty of time to talk, answer questions and discuss your concerns. I want you to feel prepared for childbirth, breastfeeding and parenting.
Prenatal visits include checking your blood pressure and urine, listening to baby’s heartbeat, palpating the baby’s position and measuring your baby’s growth.
Home Prenatal Visits: For an additional fee ($1,000.00) I will come to your home for all appointments throughout your pregnancy and postpartum period. Many women appreciate this option (especially those with small children). These appointments are just like the prenatal visits listed above, except that they are in your own home.
Appointment Scheduling: I would like to see you once a month until you reach your 28th week and then I would like to see you every 2 weeks until your 36th week and then weekly until delivery.
