Prenatal Care

 

Your Midwives are committed to your health and the wellbeing of your growing family.  We take the time to get to know you, your concerns and your needs, providing informed choice from our initial meeting all the way through your pregnancy and birth. 

 

Prenatal visits are typically over an hour long and address both the physical and emotional concerns and needs of mother and baby. We also offer standard lab work and testing for your convenience.

More details about prenatal care with a Midwife can be found here. 

Homebirth

 

The Midwives will monitor both mother and baby throughout labor and birth.  We keep a keen focus on the prevention of problems and create an environment conducive to unhindered birth and bonding.

While we are prepared to intervene if necessary, the majority of mothers birthing at home do best with minimal interventions.

Waterbirth

 

Primal Roots supports laboring in water as well as waterbirth.  Submersion in water has been shown to give significant pain relief, and we highly recommend having a tub as an option for labor. Along with promoting relaxation, buoyancy makes it easier to move and change positions. Those that labor in water are more likely to choose an upright birth position and experience a hands-off birth.

Vaginal Birth after Cesarean - VBAC 

Planning a ​Homebirth with a skilled and supportive provider creates an opportunity to birth without major surgery in the absence of a valid medical reason. Primal Roots clients VBAC success rate is 88% with one prior cesarean, 75% with two prior c sections. A large portion of our clientele are VBAC and we consider it an area of specialty. 

Breastfeeding Counseling

Achieving a complete physiological hormone release at birth is the first brick in the foundation of a successful breastfeeding relationship. Breastfeeding may be the biological norm, but there is often a learning curve and most mothers find they need extra support.

Postpartum Care

 

Comprehensive follow up visits are done in the home at 1, 3 and 5 days as well as two additional office visits before 8 weeks. 

Care for the newborn includes a newborn exam on the day of birth, follow up exams at each visit, breastfeeding counseling and referrals, newborn screening, and registration of the birth.
