High quality, individualized prenatal care is the key to a healthy pregnancy and successful home birth. Here at Tierra Madre Midwifery, prenatal visits are usually about an hour long, so women and their families are offered all the time they need to have all their questions answered and any concerns addressed in an appropriate manner. In addition to the routine mom and baby checkups, we discuss nutrition, exercise, parenting , and childbirth preparation. Regular visits are scheduled about once a month until the seventh month of pregnancy, every two weeks until the ninth month, and then weekly during the last month or so. You are always welcome to contact me at any time if something comes up between visits.
