My services include monthly prenatal visits until 28 weeks, then every two weeks until 36 weeks, then weekly until you deliver. Prenatally I monitor your nutrition, weight gain, blood pressure, and urine. I will also monitor the baby’s growth, position, and heart rate. I will provide first time families a series of three classes, one at 34 weeks, 36 weeks, and 37 weeks. For experienced families I will provide one class at 36 weeks. I come when you are in labor and stay with you until a minimum of two hours postpartum or until you and your baby are in stable condition. I return to provide postpartum care at 1 day, 3-4 days, and 7 days. There is a 3 week visit and a final 6 week visit in my office. I will provide normal newborn care for the first six weeks.
I am also passionate about providing extra support in the postpartum period. I have a lactation consultant , Katie DaMota IBCLC , come and check on you in the first week and I also include a visit from a postpartum Ayurvedic doula, Ashlee Sakaishi-Wilson. The Goal of my practice to provide families with the best possible start for success.
