Aglow Midwifery is a practice dedicated to supporting you as you move through your childbearing year. As a CPM, we provide care for low risk, healthy women interested in giving birth outside of a hospital setting. We are able to order any needed lab work, refer you for ultrasounds/sonograms, and prescribe medication as needed.
Visits are scheduled approximately every month until the last trimester, then every two weeks until the last month when visits are every week until birth. This standard schedule can be individualized depending on your own needs. Visits occur in our home office and at your home. This model works well for most families and also allows us to be familiar with your birth environment. We are also available via phone, email, and text for any questions that arise between appointments.
During prenatal visits, we will monitor the growth of your baby and changes in your body that occur through pregnancy. We also will have plenty of time to talk about these changes and answer questions or concerns that arise.
We encourage you to take childbirth classes of your choice and to seek wellness care in the form of excellent nutrition and physical activity. You can also supplement your basic wellness in a variety of ways that work for you, including chiropractic care, massage, and yoga.
During labor, our role is to provide a supportive presence, to give feedback on labor’s progress, to keep a watchful eye on both mom’s and baby’s well-being, and to provide care for any unexpected events that may require intervention. After birth we provide immediate care to both you and your new baby and assist you with beginning to breastfeed or chestfeed.
We provide at least two postpartum visits in your home in the first week and then a two week and four to six week visit at either my office or your home. We are always available by phone, text, and email.
