Antenatal Services & rates

People get this idea that birth is really hard, but forget to remember that women are really strong.

Starting your care

Antenatal care is the development of a relationship between the woman and her midwife. I would love to get to know you, your significant other, your children, and other support persons who will be present at your birth. Each visit will allow a minimum of 30 minutes of one on one time with me.
The initial visit will take a bit longer and is one hour long. I will review your health and maternity history, your wellness goals for pregnancy, and your birth plan. We will talk about taking excellent care of yourself and your baby. A complete physical exam will be done.
At every visit you will have time to talk with me about your general wellbeing, nutrition and lifestyle, discomforts of pregnancy, preparation for labour and birth as well as time to answer any questions. Recommended lab tests or other procedures will be discussed in full. Each visit includes a clinical exam: blood pressure reading, weight, abdominal exam, and foetal heart tones.
