Labor & Birth Services

Birthing your baby at home allows you and your family to labor in the comfort of your own home and birth your baby in a space that is meaningful to you.

If a home birth isn’t for you, we have a cozy birth center, complete with a huge soaking tub and several waiting areas for your family and friends.

For the safety of you and your baby, we attend low-risk women in labor between 37-42 weeks gestation.

We will stay in regular communication throughout your labor, so we can decide together when you would like us to attend you. Once together, we regularly assess you and baby, offer recommendations to ease or encourage labor, explain any possible interventions and offer emotional support. We encourage partners to be as involved as they like, many choosing to assist in catching their own baby. For families who prefer privacy, we’re happy to give you space as long as we can regularly assess mother and baby’s safety throughout labor.

Safety is our first priority and will guide our decisions throughout your labor and birth. For this reason, each birth will be attended by a midwife and a nurse who can give medications during labor and postpartum should the need arise. With the option to have antibiotics, IV fluids and emergency medications, you can find a balance between a non-medicalized birth experience and the safety of modern medicine.
