The Home-birth Package provides comprehensive maternity care in your home in true midwifery style. Routine prenatal visits last about an hour and allow us to monitor the health and well-being of you and your baby by physical assessment, lab testing, and U/S referrals as needed. Ample time is spent to discuss questions, issues, nutrition, birth plans…the list goes on. Beginning at 37 weeks we will be on-call 24/7 for your labor/birth. When the time does come, two Licensed Midwives will attend your home-birth. In the event of a transfer to hospital care, the primary midwife will continue support at the hospital. Home-birth provides freedom and flexibility. You will be encouraged to eat, drink, and move. Water-birth is supported. After you have given birth to your new baby we will stay at your home for a few hours to monitor and protect your first hours with your new baby. A full newborn exam will be done and we will ensure that breastfeeding is underway before leaving. A midwife will return to your home between 24-48 hours after the birth. Additionally, the Newborn Metabolic Screening will be done, the Birth Certificate filed, and Social Security applied for. Postnatal care includes up to 3 routine visits over 6-8 weeks. During this time we focus on supporting breastfeeding and bonding, physical recovery, and emotional transitions.

Our Montrice Service is designed to give you the ability to labor safely and confidently at home as long as you wish before moving to the hospital for birth. With this service we will be on-call 24/7 for you beginning at 37 weeks. During active labor a midwife will provide support and comfort measures in addition to assessing vital signs, monitoring fetal well-being and assessing cervical change as needed. When it is time to move to the hospital, the midwife will go with you and continue providing labor support.
