a nice way for a family to be born




the journey begins...


It all starts when...

Around the 12th week of pregnancy, you will be scheduled for your initial exam. This appointment is extensive and lasts from one to one-and-a-half hours long. During this time, a Certified Nurse Midwife (CNM) will establish your health history and profile.

Subsequent prenatal exams continue once a month throughout the pregnancy until the last month, where you will be seen once a week until you give birth. The typical prenatal exam is approximately 30 minutes (as compared to 10 minutes with a traditional OB/GYN).

In addition to health check-ups, prenatal visits serve as an opportunity for clients to develop rapport with their CNM and discuss birth plans.
