Welcome to Born Naturally!
Thank you for inviting us to be a part of your pregnancy and birth experience. We love working with women and families helping them during their process. We are honored that you have chosen to be with us during this special transformative time in your lives!
At Born Naturally Midwifery, you will receive personalized care in a relaxed, family centered way. We blend the art and science of midwifery together. We believe pregnancy, birth and breastfeeding are natural life transitions for healthy women. Therefore, we respect the innate wisdom of the body to grow a healthy baby and to give birth with minimal interventions. We believe it is unwise to interfere in the birthing process because as we do, more complications can arise.
Midwives are primary caregivers for healthy pregnant women throughout their pregnancy, delivery and postpartum periods. Midwives specialize in providing safe, quality care to low-risk, healthy women and their newborns. Midwives monitor and guide, respecting the family's choices and values. We respect the birthing process and believe it is their job as midwives to safeguard the process for mother and babe.
Midwives offer women the choice of birthing in home or in hospital. They have hospital privileges and can order all the typical tests in pregnancy such as ultrasounds and blood tests. Midwives can consult with and refer to specialists as necessary. If a transfer of care from a midwife to a physician is required, the midwife will remain involved, providing supportive care.
We work in a partnership. This means that you will get to know two midwives during your care. We alternate working every other week in the clinic and with every other week on-call for births. We try and schedule appointments, so you can see both of us equally through your prenatal appointments. This way you will get to know us and we can learn about you and familiarize themselves with you and your birth preferences
