We provide complete prenatal care, birth attendance, and postpartum care for 6 weeks following birth.
We see our clients:
Every 4 weeks, beginning at 10-12 weeks of pregnancy,
Every 2 weeks, beginning at 28 weeks of pregnancy,
Every week, beginning at 36-37 weeks of pregnancy, until birth.
We provide a home postpartum visit within 24 hours of birth. Clients then return to the Birth Center for 2 week and 6 week check ups, for both mom and baby.
Our prenatal care includes monitoring of weight, blood pressure, fundal height, fetal heart tones, fetal positioning, nutritional health, and overall well-being. We provide all routine lab work, including urinalysis, blood work, and Group Beta Strep testing. We also have a sonographer that comes to our Birth Center to provide diagnostic ultrasounds.
Our Baby Care includes (if indicated or desired) Eryhtromycin Eye Ointment, Vitamin K injection or oral supplement, Newborn Screens, and Congenital Heart Defect screening. We routinely perform delayed cord clamping, and encourage immediate skin to skin bonding for mom and baby.
Our postpartum visits include vital sign assessment of both mom and baby, thorough lactation support, and monitoring for age-appropriate milestones, as well as Pap Smear for mom if desired.
