Description of Service
Provides maternity and birth services to women seeking a safe, comfortable, out-of-hospital birth experience in a home-like setting. Focus is on a midwife model providing a high level of personal care and prioritizing uninterrupted skin-to-skin contact between mother and baby immediately after delivery and comprehensive education and support for breastfeeding and lactation.
- Prenatal Care: Educates and empowers women receiving prenatal care to be partners in their care.
- Labor & Birth: Provides support to allow women to lead their own labor and birth process with LWC’s guidance from nurses and midwive. Throughout labor and birth, our team monitors both mother and baby and provides all support and care needed by the laboring mother. Partners with experienced OB/GYN and pediatric physicians, who are on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week, should any issues arise.
- Post-partum Care: Newborn babies remain with their mothers, providing uninterrupted family bonding and an opportunity for new parents to immediately begin caring for their infants. Most families take their babies home within six to 12 hours after birth, and LWC nurses provide home visits or visits at LWC within 24 to 36 hours after birth.
