It’s those first touches and embraces that are so special. We believe your hands should be the first your baby feels and we love to let you live in the love of your new family.

Waiting for white// delayed cord clamping is a standard practice for us. We believe that the blood left in the cord is important to your baby. Did you know that at birth approximately 1/3 of your babies blood volume is still be in the placenta? The first photo is taken about 5 minutes after birth and second is about 15 minutes. You can see the cord turning white, but still pulsating.

Due dates are based on Naegele’s rule. This rule was created in the 1700’s and hasn’t been changed since. The rule assumes that you have a 28 day menstrual cycle and ovulate on the 14th day of the cycle. 

According to this rule  you add 7 days to the first day of your last period and then count forward 9 months. 

Although this rule gives us a good guess, we now know that there are several flaws with this rule. 

Irregular cycles 12-45 days

Breastfeeding mothers ovulating before first period

Ovulating more than once per cycle

The best method for estimating your due date is by an ultrasound between 11-14 weeks gestation. After 14 weeks the accuracy for estimating due dates decreases as genetic factors start to play a role in the size of your baby.

What does this mean for you?

Your estimated due date is just that, an estimation. And on average first time moms who do not induce go into spontaneous labor at 41 weeks and 3 days. If you have a provider who schedules inductions at the 40 or 41 week mark,  your baby and body might not be ready.

Did you know that we collect cord blood after every birth? Even when we "wait for white" there is a small amount of blood left in the vessels. We can use this for blood type.

Two pink lines!! We love getting these photos from our repeat families. 💕💕💕
We do encourage early calls so we can fit you on our limited calendar. The next step is to call the office for our small group consults offered each Thursday or to schedule your intake appointment if you are one of our repeats. We start care as early as 6 weeks.

SROM// Spontaneous Rupture of Membranes refers to the amniotic sac rupturing on its own (in contrast to artificial rupture of membranes). Your amniotic sac or membranes are made up of two layers called the chorion(on the outside) and amnion(on the inside. This babes sac did not rupture until just before birth. Isn't this a cool photo?

Birth of Margeaux

This birth was so beautiful and such an honor to attend as a midwife. This woman is an amazing friend and was my midwife partner for hundreds of births. We grew a practice together and in our birth skills and philosophies. I am always honored to serve women. It is the greatest compliment when a woman, who shares your calling, chooses you as her midwife. Love you and your family, Megan.

We support the golden hour!
A time of uninterrupted bonding and discovery. You can count fingers and toes, snuggle up skin to skin and watch for your baby to lead you. The first latch is just part of this wondrous one to two hours.
