Schedule a Free Consultation

We love talking with prospective parents! If it’s your first or your 7th 😉 Anytime you are expecting a new baby in the family we love being invited into your story. So please fill in the contact form to get more information from us and schedule a free initial consultation!

This is the meeting set up for us to get to know each other. Unlike many client/business relationships, both parties have a decision to make in whether or not we are the right fit for each other. The reason why we both need to feel right about it is because it is such a big decision. You are adding a new member to your family and looking for the right person to guide you through the pregnancy and birth and transition to being new parents for the first time or new parents to another baby.

That being said, although all my prenatals are family/kid friendly, (see below) I do ask that for the consultation parents find a babysitter (if at all possible) due to the nature of the appointment. It is hard for the questions the parents have to be asked and the paperwork I have to be discussed properly when trying to keep their children entertained. It is important to get to know each other at this visit to know if we are the right fit for each other.

This appointment should take about one to one-and-a-half hours depending on where you are in the process of choosing your midwife and birth site. If you are just starting out, it may take longer because you may have more questions, but if you have already had a homebirth, or interviewed other midwives everything will be familiar and you won’t have as many questions.

This appointment takes place in my home office, and I do ask that if possible, both mom and dad attend because together they need to feel comfortable with their choice in a care provider. We generally start off with me answering your questions that you bring along, and then we go through my paperwork answering any other questions that come up as well. I then send the paperwork home with you to read over in greater detail and should you choose me as your care provider you can call or email me, and then send me the completed health history form so that I have a chance to look over it to be sure there are no surprises.

One thing that can be helpful but not necessary is for you to bring copies of your medical records to go over at the consultation. Especially records including previous pregnancies and births.
