Home or Birth Center Birth
Jackie Griggs CNM has helped women birth at home and in birth centers for over 20 years, in addition to having their own home births.
Midwives experienced in out of hospital birth
Their insights and hands-on experience help mothers and families prepare for the emotional, physical and practical aspects of this unforgettable event.
Along with providing personalized and comprehensive prenatal care, your midwife helps you plan and prepare for the birth. This includes creating a birth plan, ordering a birth kit, gathering the necessary supplies and more! In addition, for those planning a home birth, at least one home visit is conducted around 36 weeks to confirm your location, travel routes, and to review your actual birth plan. We also bring a birth tub to your home if you desire.
There are many ways to customize your birth, and your midwife will help you focus on what matters to you. Your midwife is there to provide care, comfort and encouragement as needed; as the laboring mother you decide who will be there and what you want the environment to be.
After your birth
Within one to two days of your birth, your midwife makes a home visit to provide comprehensive follow-up care for you and your newborn.
