A Few Things

"you knit me together in my mother’s womb."

Hi, I'm Hillary! Birth worker and founder of Be Fruitful, serving areas near Glenville, Glen Rock, Spring Grove, Hanover, Seven Valleys, New Oxford, and York PA. 

My love of birth was sparked in 2006 and I have been growing and learning ever since. Having given birth to my own 5 babies and miscarrying 4 others, I have personally been through many different experiences that have left me hurt, awe-inspired, disappointed, rejuvenated, passionate, and surprised! I believe in physiological, trauma free, and safe birth. Birth works and it is beautiful!

Now accepting Midwifery clients with a due date of Fall 2023 and beyond!

Let me help you have the happiest and most satisfying birth imaginable! I am currently offering Midwifery care in the home setting, doula services, childbirth education, pregnancy support, postpartum support, breastfeeding support. I am on the path to becoming a Certified Professional Midwife through the North American Registry of Midwives, by Summer 2023, by having completed a clinical apprenticeship with all of the educational requirements. I am trained in physiological pregnancy and birth. 

What is Home Birth Midwifery Care?

Midwifery care is mother-led-in-home birth services through the childbearing year, including well woman care in the first year postpartum. You will receive personalized and complete prenatal care during your whole pregnancy. I will be with you at your gentle homebirth or home water birth, and then you and baby will be taken care of during the first 6 weeks postpartum. 


ALL childbearing woman have the RIGHT to choose their care provider, their place of birth, they have the right to see their charts, files, and medical records, the right to refuse tests and procedures, and the right to voice questions, concerns, comments, and wishes regarding their care and privacy!

What does a prenatal appointment (typically*) look like? 

  • assessing clinical findings such as weight, blood pressure, urine test, temperature, pulse.

  • listening to fetal heart beat, measuring fundal height, and palpating fetal lie

  • asking questions about general well being. Including emotional, physical, and social aspects.

  • answering any questions or concerns about pregnancy and birth

  • history taking and a brief physical exam upon intake 

  • lab work when indicated

  • ultrasound referrals

  • nutritional coaching and lifestyle consulting

  • education about pregnancy, birth, and postpartum

*I believe all appointments should be client-led. I would love to work with you on your visit preferences!
