Mapping your Childbearing Year - Past, Present or Future
I am a homebirth midwife. In becoming one, I have delved deeply into informed consent, shared decision making and evidence based pregnancy care. This knowledge I find useful regardless of one's choice of birth setting.
Childbearing Year Mapping is an individualized approach to enhancing your journey through pregnancy and early parenting. We can discuss birth location options, routine prenatal care and screenings so that you can make informed choices. We can discuss fears or concerns that sometimes arise in our culture or personal experience around birth. And I have a wealth of resources to share regarding all aspects of conception, pregnancy, birth and early parenting.
You are wanting to conceive. You are wanting to get pregnant again. You are pregnant. You have just had a baby - And you are unclear as to your options and what is available to you. You are not alone!
Pregnancy is an anomaly in our medical system. You are not sick and yet you are funneled through a system designed for dealing with sick people.
I want to help you understand the lay of the land. Your care provider choices. The options available to you in every care setting.
It may be that your care provider only has 15 minutes to spend with you leaving some questions unanswered. We have great providers in the area and their time is often short.
I can help you identify ideals and goals for your care that you can take to any practitioner and put into action. I am available to consult on specific issues as they arise. Helping you gain a deeper understanding to better work with your care provider.
