Prenatal care is an important part of any birth. We provide care for low risk clients. The first visit includes a complete physical assessment, medical history including a detailed previous birth history, nutritional counseling and the drawing of blood for labs. Subsequent visits occur at monthly intervals until 28 weeks, then bi-monthly until 36 weeks. Weekly prenatal visits the last few weeks ensure close contact leading up to delivery.

prenatalThe initial visit usually will last at least an hour and a half, subsequent visits are one hour. The visits after 36 weeks are usually 30 minutes. Any concerns, whether they be physical, emotional or psychological may be addressed and discussed, in addition to the routine prenatal assessments and concerns, including:

  • Fetal Heart Tones
