Every woman deserves the very best care during her pregnacy, birth, and postpartum journey. I am here for you! I will help guide you, answer your questions, and give you the very best evidence based information to help you make informed decisions about your care. I will support you in whatever way you see fit.
Midwifery Care: I provide all aspects of prenatal, birth, and postpartum care including; blood work, vital signs, fundal height, fetal heart tones, baby's position, and the emotional and physical well being of the mother. I monitor mother and baby during labor, birth, and postpartum including all well woman care and well baby care for the first 6 weeks postpartum. I perform a newborn exam and run all standard tests for the newborn including; dried blood spot test, filing the birth certificate and social security. Topics of education usually include baby wearing, cloth diapering, infant care, food prep, herbal baths, nutrition, emotional wellbeing, breastfeeding, childbirth, informed consent, rights of the childbearing woman, and typical birth protocols, birth plan prep, home prep for birth, hospital bag prep, herbs and homeopathy for the childbearing years, and many other questions and advice about pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. The investment in my homebirth midwifery care around $3,300. This does not include lab tests, ultrasounds, or other fees that may come up during your care. I DO offer discounts. This price is subject to change. I am currently ONLY performing midwifery care in Pennsylvania.
Bereavement: This is very dear to my heart. Being told that your child has died, or will die, is heavy news. It can feel like the world is crumbling. But grief can look like many things. I am here to listen, to share ideas on how to preserve the memory of your child, to help you with meals, to help you heal physically and emotionally. I am here for you. In whatever capacity you need. This care is usually free of charge.
NRP, HBB, CPR Certified Midwife Assistant and backup Midwife: I work with many Midwives in the area as an assistant and on-call backup Midwife. In this role, I support the midwife and the mother during pregnancy, labor, birth, and immediate postpartum alongside the midwife or instead of the midwife if she is busy at another birth or taking a much needed vacation.
I am not a nurse, practitioner, Doctor, or a medical professional and I cannot diagnose, treat, or cure any disease.
