We offer a combination of home prenatal visits and prenatal visits at our beautiful location in the Milwaukie/Sellwood area. Prenatal visits are an hour long and Include a thorough assessment of the health of you and your baby at each stage of pregnancy. The visits are also a time when we get to know each other and create the bond necessary to establish trust and comfort during labor. We offer all of the tests and screens that are available during pregnancy while also educating you about each test and each screen enabling you to make an informed decision about what is right for your body, your baby and for your family. As your birth approaches, the focus of our prenatal visits turns towards the birthing process as we discuss your feelings and desires about your approaching birth and work out a birth plan.
