Each visit will include vitals check, urinalysis, measurements, listening to baby’s heartbeat, and nutritional counseling. Blood work done at the initial visit then at 28 weeks then again at 36 weeks. I am always available to answer your questions.

I believe that breastfeeding gives your baby the best possible start to life and is an excellent way for a mother to bond with her baby. I will provide information and personal support as you and your baby adjust to the demands and joys of breastfeeding.
This includes regular monitoring and support, for both mother and baby, following birth. Home visits at 24 and 36 hours and 1 week. Additional visits will follow over the next 6 weeks.
If you are interested in the benefits of your placenta, I provide encapsulation services as well as placenta tinctures. You have the choice of TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) or “raw” method of encapsulation. Placenta tincture’s are great as they last much longer and can be used later in life.
We offer access to a full service laboratory. We will collect the needed blood work and cultures in the office and have it sent out to be processed. The cost of the lab work is covered by most insurance companies.
Available to check out are books and DVD’s on pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding/lactation, etc.

"When a man is truly "present" for the birth of his child and allows himself to be touched by the mystery unfolding before his eyes, he will have an unquestionable experience that can catapult him into the next phase of his development as a mature human being. His encounter with the power of birth...can connect him for the rest of his life."
"We have a secret in our culture, and it"s not that birth is painful, It's that women are strong."
"Giving birth should be your greatest achievement not your greatest fear."
