Holistic Maternity Care
Regardless of where a mother plans to give birth, she can enjoy the benefits of personalized prenatal and postpartum care. As a licensed midwife, I provide comprehensive, personalized, and holistic prenatal care. At Valley Oak Maternity Care you will receive focused attention, and your appointments will not be rushed. We focus on your individual needs and on preparing you for your birth. Also, there is never a wait! I offer two types of maternity care: Prenatal Care Only, and Home Birth Services.
Prenatal Care Only
Your Prenatal Care includes but is not limited to:
Regular prenatal office visits
Education on topics such as fetal development, tests offered, nutrition, breastfeeding, and more
Any lab tests that may be necessary
Referral for ultrasound as needed or desired
Monitoring fetal growth and well-being
Monitoring Mom's well-being
Preparation for birth and postpartum time
Postpartum care includes in-home care for mother and baby following the birth/arrival home (optional)
Home Birth Services/Comprehensive Maternity Care
Birthing at home can be a great option for many moms! Care includes comprehensive prenatal care (see above) as well as in-home labor & delivery, and postpartum care for mom and baby through at least 6 weeks postpartum. Ideally, home birth clients begin care with me in their first trimester, by about 12 weeks of pregnancy. I do take some late-to-care clients as long as they have had prenatal care with another provider and those records are provided to me.
Note: We do not bill insurance, however a superbill receipt can be provided for submission to insurance.
