Pregnancy, labor and birth is a catalyst journey in a woman's life. Why not make it a journey filled with empowerment, education, joy, and individualized care in YOUR home?
All prenatal appointments are done in the comfort of your home, where all of your questions are answered without any rush. Your partner, parents, children can be involved as much as you'd like. Prenatals with me typically last 1-1 1/2 hours, depending on your needs. Evening appointments are most common, so that your spouse can be involved each time.
What if your husband/partner could have as active a role as desired during labor and birth, rather than sitting on the sidelines waiting for someone to "allow" for participation? No "three-handed catches" if s/he wants to catch the baby. This can be an incredible experience of bonding for a family. The hormones in labor are the very hormones of love - oxytocin. Close involvement is encouraged at every step.
You have these options when you give birth at home. You can have your children, pets, family, friends there with you for support and love ... or it can simply be you and your partner. You can give birth in whatever room you choose, in water or out. You are not treated as a sick patient, and that is simply because childbirth is not a disease or a medical condition. Pregnancy and childbirth are physiologic events in a woman's life, and the vast majority of the time it occurs without any problems whatsoever.
The newborn exam is done gently and right next to mom. Baby never gets separated from mom - even as far as across the room. Mom, dad, and even older siblings are involved at every step. Baby is weighed in a soft sling instead of being placed on a hard scale.
Giving birth at home is a great option for women with low-risk pregnancies (the definition of this can vary, so if you have any questions, please see the FAQs page) who wish to have tailor their experience to be gentle, loving, and intimate.
