Prenatal Visits

Prenatal visits will usually take place in your home. Each pregnancy is unique and there is a wealth of information that we need to share with you to help prepare you for a healthy pregnancy, labor and birth. Therefore we tailor prenatal visits to suit the needs of each individual woman along with providing standard prenatal care.

Prenatal appointments are generally scheduled in 2 hour intervals for the initial visit and subsequent visits normally last 1-2 hours per visit. Depending on the individual needs of the woman and when she enters into care she can expect to be seen as follows: 

Every 4 weeks until 20 weeks pregnant, 

Every 3 weeks until 28 weeks, 

Every 2 weeks until 35 weeks

Every week until 40 weeks, 

Twice per week until 42 weeks of pregnancy.  

*** Please note that due to COVID-19 the frequency of visits has been modified to meet the needs of the client while limiting the amount of in home visits.***

We are committed to your health and the wellbeing of your growing family. We will be there to provide you with continuous emotional and physical support.

Mother and Baby

Homebirth

A birth at home translates into greater control and empowerment for the woman. She is free to choose where and how she labors. She may choose the most comfortable position to deliver her infant. She is free to eat, drink and use the bathroom at her leisure. She is free. 

At Transcendent Births we specialize in water birth and offer this option to the women in our care. The benefits of laboring and birthing in water are many, offering mom soothing pain relief and baby a gentler transition.

However, you may opt for a birth outside of water and that is wholly supported also.

We practice delayed cord clamping as we believe it is vital that baby receive their full blood supply. We also support the families desire for a Lotus Birth if desired.

The hour after the birth of your infant

 (the Golden Hour) is acknowledged as an intense period of bonding for mother baby and family. It is a beautiful experience to witness and will be honored  without disturbance. Your safety and that of your infant will always supersede any plans set forth initially.  My role as your midwife will be to ensure infant and mom are within the confines of safety, to keep them there and to recognize and immediately deal with any deviations from normal to ensure the safety of the infant and that of the mother! At Transcendent Births we take our role very seriously and take great pleasure in assisting women in this rite of passage.
