A planned homebirth with a trained midwife is the perfect choice if you want to avoid unnecessary medical intervention. Midwives are experts in supporting the physiological birth process: monitoring you and your baby during pregnancy and labor, helping you into positions that support progress of labor, protecting your pelvic floor from damage while pushing, and catching the baby from the position that’s most effective and comfortable for you, for example, hands and knees, squatting, standing and even birthing in the birth tub.
Michele has confidence that women can birth their babies and she will work to instill that confidence, for the women to believe in themselves.
As a homebirth midwife, Michele specializes in care that normalizes pregnancy and natural birth at home. Family oriented and personalized prenatal care in your home creates an environment of respect, attention, support, trust, confidence, understanding and comfort.
Every pregnancy and birth is unique. In the course of your pregnancy you will have plenty of time to make choices and choose options that best suit you and your family’s desire for your baby’s birth.
