Prenatal Care visits can be held on a common schedule or a task-based schedule.
The common schedule for prenatal care includes:
The task-based schedule is an evidence-based alternative schedule available for busy parents, parents from outside our normal service area, or for parents who have given birth before out-of-hospital and desire a more hands-off approach to their prenatal care. The task-based schedule for prenatal care includes:
Both schedules for prenatal care include 24/7 access to a midwife for urgent concerns.
Labor and Birth Care is led by the unique needs of your family and your labor.
Your midwife will arrive at your home when you are in active labor.
When you are close to giving birth, your midwife will call in one or more Midwife Assistants.
Your birth team's Labor, Birth, and Immediate Postpartum Care for you will include:
If a transport to hospital-based care is necessary before or after the birth, a member of your care team will accompany you and provide report and your complete records to the receiving care team. They will remain with you until after you have given birth, when you and your baby are stable and ready to rest.
Postpartum Care and Newborn Care visits take place in your home on the following schedule:
At your final postpartum visit, you will be offered a full physical exam (including pelvic exam), information on family planning or contraception, and other lab testing as indicated or requested.
