Imagine appointments that enable a gaining of confidence to trust your own body with someone who listens and guides you.
At Helena Birth Studio, you are a full partner in your prenatal care. Your prenatal appointments will last approximately 45 minutes. The majority of your appointment will take place in the comfort of our consultation room where we will provide education about your body’s physical and emotional changes, discuss nutrition, and give you opportunities to ask questions. We will offer helpful suggestions for dealing with pregnancy-related issues. Next, we will move to the exam area where your midwife will listen to your baby’s heartbeat, check your baby’s growth and position, and assess your vital signs.
Prenatal appointments are scheduled monthly until 28-weeks, every two weeks until 36 weeks, and weekly until you give birth. If you are planning a homebirth, your appointment at 36-37 weeks will take place at your home.
Prenatal testing and genetic screening are offered according to individual desire. Routine lab work and ultrasounds will be ordered by your midwife.
