The prenatal care that you receive from the midwives at New Earth Midwifery is very personal. We offer a comprehensive holistic program of care. Your individualized care begins with your first prenatal visit. You can expect our prenatal visits to last 45 minutes. During our visits we will be checking in on you and your baby. We make time during each visit for you to ask questions. We want to get to know you and for you to get to know us. We are here to guide and nurture you into the very special journey of motherhood. Some routine assessments at each visit will be: checking your blood pressure, listening to your baby’s heartbeat, assessing the growth and position of your baby and asking you how you have been feeling and how your baby has been. We will discuss labs and ultrasounds as well as offer you any testing that applies to your maternity care. We will give you valuable information to take home and read, some homework and a lot of support.
We provide education for pregnancy, nutrition, labor support, parenting guidance, vaccine info, baby care, and general family health. Your family and friends are welcome to come to your visits. Your children are welcome to come and play in the play area.
Prenatal visits are every month from 8 weeks – 28 weeks, then every 2 weeks from 30 weeks – 36 weeks. The 36 week visit is in your home. Then we see you back in the office every week until the baby is born.
