If you have never had a midwife-assisted birth, you don't know what you are missing!
Call to schedule an appointment for a FREE 1-hour initial consultation with the midwife and tour the Blessed Care clinic.
FREE Initial Consultation
We offer a free 1-hour initial consultation with the midwife. The entire hour will be spent with the midwife in a peaceful, relaxed environment, with no waiting. The midwife will discuss your pregnancy and birthing preferences, answer questions, and guide you on a tour of the clinic.
Prenatal visits are usually an hour long. The relaxed and peaceful environment at the clinic is ideal to discuss your pregnancy, diet and nutrition, exercise, sleep, and any questions or concerns you may have.
Blessed Care prenatal visits include the following:
- A physical exam
- Blood Pressure Measurement
- Measurement of your belly
- Listening to the baby's heartbeat
- Palpating for baby position
- Urine test
- Nutritional assessment and counseling
Compare the following birthing options:
A Hospital Birth
You get about 7 minutes for each doctor visit.
When it is time for birth, you arrive, get into a gown, get into a bed to labor, are attached to an IV, you are not allowed to get up and walk around, you are not allowed to eat or drink (would you run a marathon without any food or water? they don't call it "labor" for nothing), and deliver laying on your back. The nurse takes the baby away after delivery, missing those vital initial minutes on the breast.
A Midwife Homebirth
You spend up to an hour with your midwife at each visit, getting answers to your questions, getting advice for problems, charting your progress.
When it is time for birth, you arrive, get into comfortable clothes or a gown; you can eat and drink, walk around, labor in a position you choose (on your back or your side or squatting ,or even in a warm hot tub for a water birth) The baby goes to the breast as soon as possible after delivery. You get so much more .... time, personalized care, support.....and it costs less!!
