Prenatal, Birth and Postpartum Home Midwifery Care
My care is rooted equally in Traditional Mexican Midwifery, Modern Clinical Practices and Evidenced Based Research....
I deeply hold true that all people deserve health care and care providers that are free of racism, classism, homo and transphobia.
Prenatal visits take place in my North Oakland office and occasionally via Zoom
Regularly scheduled prenatal visits occur:
0-28 weeks, Once a month
28-36 weeks, Once every 2 weeks
36-42 weeks, Weekly till birth
Our prenatal visits honor the sacred, beautiful and sometimes difficult time of pregnancy and birth.
We track the health and growth of you and baby with labs and ultrasounds when needed and use plant medicine, bodywork and ceremony to ease common discomforts and transitions.
We have plenty of time at our hour long visits to review lab work, learn about each other, the birth process and to integrate information as a birth team.
We discuss ways to prepare yourself, your home and family (including siblings!) for a home birth.
During your labor I arrive with everything needed for a safe home birth. With the assistance of a second qualified midwife, we vigilantly and gently assess the wellbeing of birthing person and baby.
Postpartum care of birthing person and baby begins as soon as your baby is born and continues for 6 weeks.
Postpartum visits happen in the comfort of your home and maximize adequate rest, nutrition, healing and bonding. Lactation/chest feeding support, belly binding, massage, and cerrada de caderas (6 week closing ceremony) is included.
Ideal clients to work with me value the time, energy, personal and financial commitment it takes to prepare for a birth and postpartum ceremony.
My clients are aware of the many paths a birth may take and that the care of their midwife can help guide them through the process as it unfolds.
Are you unsure if home birth is right for you or are you confused about your options for birth in the Bay Area? Please contact me, I can help.
