Prenatal

The prenatal period is a time for us to get to know one another and family

What we do

We want you to be informed and empowered.

Over the course of our appointments, we work to build a relationship based on mutual respect, love and trust. We spend time at each visit to educate you on the changes your body and baby are going through during pregnancy. We evaluate your health to ensure baby is growing and thriving. We encourage clients to share with us their experiences since we last visited, answer all questions, and discuss your wishes leading up to birth.
