Professional Birthing Services offices are located in Flora and Wabash, Indiana where patients can schedule early morning as well as late afternoon appointments to accommodate your family's schedules. I offer prenatal, labor & birth and postpartum care in the office. As your midwife I desire to offer education, comfort, support and midwifery during your pregnancy by being available by phone or text anytime.
Prenatal visits are scheduled every month until the 28th week, and every two weeks until the 38th week, and finally every week until baby arrives. Each visit will consist of blood pressure check, urine testing, fetal position by palpating, fetal heart rate, and discussion of diet and life style. At the first visit prenatal blood work will be done and a Dating ultra sound can be requested. Prenatal appointments are scheduled for one hour in the office, the 36 week visit is done in your home. I will be able to help you prepare for your birth.
Labor & Birth
The birth team, (another midwife or student and myself)will arrive when requested to monitor, assess, support, assist and give guidance during the birthing process. The after birth care is assessing baby and mother to make sure both are stable. It is important that baby nurse and mother has eaten before I leave. I am available anytime of the day or night to answer questions about yourself or baby.
A one day visit is done in your home to check vitals of mother and baby, breastfeeding support as well at the Newborn Screen and hearing test. I will file the birth certificate and leave instructions for obtaining the birth certificate. Day 3-5 I will visit again to check on everyone’s well being. At week 6 an office visit is scheduled to release records and evaluate your birth experience. I am available at any time day or night either by phone or text if you have a problem, question or concern.
