We Provide comprehensive prenatal care throughout your entire pregnancy. Your first visit will be at 8-12 weeks and then every 4 weeks until the 32nd week. You will then be seen every 2 weeks until your 36th week and then weekly thereafter. Prenatal visits typically last 45 minutes to an hour.
Prenatal labs and cultures will be done at your first visit and again at 36 weeks. Sonograms are offered at 12 and 20 weeks or if the need arises at any point in your pregnancy.
We believe the woman's body was designed by a Genius. Your body is intended to give birth in a normal natural way. This is enhanced with intimate support and mutual decision making. You will be able to choose which positions to labor in. You have the option of water birth too. You and the baby will be closely monitored throughout labor and birth with technological interventions kept at a minimum.
The golden hour after birth is a very precious time for you, the baby and your family. We encourage skin to skin contact and breastfeeding. We will do our best to leave you as undisturbed as possible during this time. A thorough newborn exam is done at mom’s side when the baby is approximately one to two hours old. You have the option of Vit-K and eye ointment at that time. We stay a minimum of 4 hours and longer if needed.
Checkups are scheduled as follows:
24-72 hour checkup done in your home
