Quality Home Birth Care

Birth is normal. God created birth and God created the woman’s body to be able to give birth without needing intervention in most cases.

Prenatal Care

We see mom for regularly scheduled 45-minute prenatal visits. We follow moms through the normal course of pregnancy, build relationship, educate, and pay attention to her body, mind, and spirit to identify when special care is needed.

Labor & Birth

We are on call 24/7 and support the mom to move freely and birth wherever she desires including in water. We trust the birth process and are simply present as a safety net if anything requires our skills, medicine, or equipment.

Postpartum Care

We remain on call 24/7 for our clients immediately after the birth for any urgent medical concerns for mom or baby through 6 weeks postpartum. We perform heart and hearing screenings for baby and file for the birth certificate.
