A free, no-obligation, one-hour long interview. This is your opportunity to ask me anything about homebirth and my midwifery practice. In most cases, it is best if your partner or main birth support person also attends. *My practice is inclusive and supportive of ALL families.
Prajna Birth Complete Homebirth Care $3000
I offer a full spectrum of prenatal, birth, postpartum and newborn care that encourages and supports the whole family.
Prenatal Care: Prenatal visits help build a foundation for healthy pregnancy and birth, provide opportunity for shared decision making, and are also a lot of fun! Siblings are always welcome and often get great joy from "helping" the midwife. Visits typically last 45-60 minutes and include prenatal physical assessment to monitor the health of your pregnancy and growth of your baby as well as nutritional, educational and emotional support that is tailored to your personal needs. Visits occur monthly until 28 weeks, every 2 weeks until 36 weeks and weekly until birth, with a home visit scheduled around 36 weeks. Routine labs are included. Non-routine testing, labs and ultrasounds may be offered but will incur additional costs.
Phone, text, and email support during your pregnancy and postpartum. Ask me anything and I'll help you find answers, resources or just lend an ear.
24-hr On-call from 37 weeks. In labor at 3 am? Or on a holiday? No problem!
Continuous labor and birth support from the active labor through the birth of your baby. Should a transport to the hospital become necessary; the midwife will accompany you and provide emotional and physical support and guidance. The fee includes a paid birth assistant or second midwife, who will be called to come during active labor.
Immediate postpartum support from birth until you and your baby are stable and settled, including initial bonding and breastfeeding support, an herbal bath (if desired) and full clean-up (typically for the first 2-3 hours after your birth).
Postpartum care for you and your baby for the first 6 weeks after birth. Postpartum home visits and well-baby check-ups are routinely done at 24-36 hours; 1 week, and 2 weeks. A final office visit is offered at 6 weeks. Additional visits will be provided as necessary.
Access to my extensive lending library of pregnancy and childbirth books, magazines, and DVD's.
