Prenatal care is very important.     
  • I do not practice medicine.

  • I do midwifery care, which for my practice, includes labs and                                                                     ultra sounds

  • I will not break your water to get your labor started.                                                                (called Amniotomy).

  • I will not use drugs to induce or augment your labor (pitocin,                                                                         cytotec). If you feel that you need these, then you NEED to be                                                                           in a hospital.  This is out of the ‘norm’ and you will no longer                                                                       be a ‘low risk’.

  • I will not ‘push’ to get your labor going, just because today is your due date.

  • I do use a doppler to listen to your baby’s heartbeat. 

  • I do not do routine episiotomies, shave preps or enemas. 

  • I do not tell you what position you need to labor or deliver in, I encourage you to change your position if I feel it will help you with your labor and delivery, or if it will be a benefit to the baby.  

  • I do not use forceps or vacuum extractor.

  • I do not cut the umbilical cord until it has stopped pulsating and this can take from 3 to 30 minutes.

  • I do not limit your food and fluid intake when you are in labor, in fact I encourage you to eat often and drink water, juice or herbal teas often during your labor and delivery.

I Will 

  • Give a free consultation / interview in person or by phone. If you would like to meet me at your home, there will be a travel fee that will be deducted from the overall fee if you use my services.

  • Do labs 

  • Offer Ultra sounds

  • Suggest you see my collaborating Physician 

  • Option of collaborative care/Co-care with my Collaborating physician

  • Have the first prenatal visit last from 2-3 hours. Giving us plenty of time to get to know each other, providing you with enough information to make a decision that will be correct for you and your family.

  • The second visit and each visit after that will last at least 30 minutes to 1 hour. Continue to provide education including any new information. I believe you need to be informed at all times.

  • Educate you about pregnancy, labor, birth, labs, tests, post partum, breast feeding, nutrition, and herbs.

  • Come to your home or have you come to my office (if you are over an hour from my office you are expected to come to my office for all of your prenatal appointments-any adjustments in this can be discussed at your first prenatal appointment). 

  • Not hurry your appointments. This is your time. I schedule all of my appointments so you have a minimum of 30 minutes to 1 hour. (as needed)

  • Take time to get to know you and your family and give time for you to get to know me.

  • Offer a lending library of books 

  • Be available for your emergency needs via phone or pager 24/7

  • Be available for general needs during normal daytime business hours Monday thru Friday, 9 am until 5 pm.
