During Pregnancy & Birth
Prenatal visits every 4 weeks until 28 weeks, every 2 weeks until 36 weeks, and weekly thereafter until your baby is born. The visits are done in the office with the exception of the 36 week visit which is done in the mom’s home. The midwife is available by phone during your pregnancy and for 6 weeks postpartum. The midwife attends your labor and birth with another midwife as her assistant. The midwife will remain with you for usually up to 4 hours after the birth and return in 24 hours for a home postpartum visit. Another home postpartum visit is done at 2 or 3 days. The 6 weeks postpartum visit takes place in the office.
