I provide midwifery care for those seeking homebirth in the Brighton,CO, Denver, CO, and surrounding areas. Care from a midwife is tailored to your needs and desires, and works ont he premise of informed choice - meaning we talk about all of your options and you can feel confident you have enough information to make decisions about your care. A holistic approach to pregnancy and childbirth means that appointments are about 45 minutes long to allow enough time for you to ask questions, talk about concerns, and to let us get a good picture of your overall health and wellbeing. Prenatal care is in my home office in Brighton. Most postpartum visits are in your home! The timeline for visits is roughly:
Every 4 weeks from beginning of care until 28 weeks of pregnancy, then
Every 2 weeks from 28 weeks - 36 weeks, then
Every week until the birth,
24-36 hours postpartum,
2 more visits in the first week postpartum,
Lactation care as additionally needed, in your home,
and about 1-3 more postpartum visits, depending on your needs. The final visit is back at my office, around 6 weeks postpartum.
Because of midwifery availability, I am no longer providing doula services. To find a great doula, you may wish to see www.with-women.com or www.coloradodoulas.com.
