Total Prenatal Care
From pregnancy test to postpartum, your midwife will monitor and advise you every step of the way. First trimester visits will be monthly. After 28 weeks your visits will be twice a month. Finally, after 36 weeks up until birth, you will see the midwife weekly. Lab tests and ultrasounds will be scheduled appropriately. We also offer trauma-informed prenatal care for survivors of sexual abuse.
Birth Center Birth
Our facility has two birthing suites, each with a private mini kitchen and full bath, a sun porch, as well as, a privacy-fenced backyard. It is conveniently located less than 3 miles from Florida Hospital Zephyrhills in the event transfer is necessary.
Give birth in the privacy and comfort of your own home surrounded by a supportive midwife, birth assistant, and your loved ones. Our home birth service gives the woman in labor complete control over her surroundings.
A birth tub is available upon request at the center and at home births for your comfort. Water birth has been shown to be natural pain relief for the mother and can help baby ease more peacefully out of the womb.
After giving birth, a midwife will schedule postpartum exams for you and your baby at 2 days, 2 weeks, and 6 weeks to make sure there are no medical issues that need to be addressed by an OB/GYN.
Breastfeeding can be the most challenging part of having a new baby. During your pregnancy, we will provide educational material and find support groups for you. After you give birth, we will check for proper baby latching and address any specific issues you are having with your new baby.
Nutrition is crucial in growing a healthy baby and having a successful natural birth. We will provide you with resources, advise you on a healthy diet plan, and provide supplements and essential oils.
Throughout your pregnancy, we will have regular classes to prepare you for childbirth. Education is the key to having your best birth outcome possible.
