Homebirth Midwifery

The Homebirth Program is a comprehensive  pregnancy, birth, and postpartum care program utilizing The Midwives Model of Care including 

  • monitoring physical, psychological and social well-being throughout the childbearing cycle

  • providing individualized education, counseling, and prenatal care, continuous hands-on assistance during labor and delivery, and postpartum support

  • minimizing technological interventions and

  • identifying and referring those who require obstetrical attention.

The application of this model has been proven to reduce to incidence of birth injury, trauma, and cesarean section. 

 The Homebirth Program includes:

  • A free 1 hour consultation to discuss birthing options, provide information, and answer any questions you may have. 

  • Monthly 1 hour prenatal appointments from about 12 weeks through your 8th month. These appointments allow plenty of time to get to know you and your wishes for your birth, to answer questions, and provide education and counseling as needed. The last 15 minutes or so of each appointment is devoted to your clinical prenatal care.

  • A 1 hour home visit at 37 weeks.

  • Weekly half hour appointments in the last month of pregnancy until birth.

  • On call availability from 37-42+ weeks.

  • Phone/text contact in early labor to determine when you are ready for our support.

  • Continuous support in your home through active labor, birth, and immediate postpartum.

  • Initial breastfeeding support.

  • Head-to-toe newborn exam after birth.

  • Postpartum visits in your home on days 1 and 4 after birth including a Congenital Heart Disease Screen and PKU Screen.

  • Postpartum visits at 2, 4, and 6 weeks.

"Knowledgeable, experienced, and confident in the natural birthing process, allowing the most hands-free experience, while also being able to recognize when help is indeed necessary and doing so in the least interventive way. Incredibly supportive and informative as well...every birthing mother deserves the experience Lauren allowed me to have."
