before pregnancy…

Considering pregnancy? That’s a great time to come see us. A healthy pregnancy starts with a healthy woman. And we midwives are pretty intense about women’s health!

We’re trained to provide primary-care services for women so we can take care of your annual exams, pap smears and birth control. And with our deep knowledge of reproduction and pregnancy, we’re ready to help you with fertility information and decisions about genetic testing for you and your partner.

Our hour-long, pre-pregnancy visit takes a holistic approach to wellness. We’ll go over all the things that affect your physical and emotional health, like your eating, sleeping, fitness, and stress level. Then we’ll help you come up with a few simple things you can do to improve overall wellness for you…and your future baby.

Your 1st trimester at Baby+Company…

So much is new and exciting during this time. We’ll get started building 3 things together… your healthy pregnancy…a strong relationship with you and your family…and a supportive group of expecting parents.

Here’s how we’ll do it:

  • 1st trimester check-up/check-in visit (30 minutes). We’ll get to know you and your health history.  You can bring anyone you’d like, including your kids.
  • Group visit (90 minutes).  Group visits are conversations with 8 to 12 expecting parents and a member of your care team. They’re a great way to learn about pregnancy, birth, and parenting while you to build supportive friendships with other families.  Your first visit focuses on making informed decisions about genetic testing for your baby.
  • Classes, workshops, and groups. Learn about birth, breastfeeding and newborn care, get some exercise, or just relax with a massage. We have a full schedule of weekly activities.
  • Your personal handbook. This handy guide helps you make the most of every visit with your care team.
  • Making insurance easy. We accept all major insurance. If we’re out-of-network with your plan, we’ll talk with your insurer and give you an estimate of your out-of-pocket costs for prenatal care and birth with us.

We’re doing everything we can think of to make your journey great.

your 2nd trimester at Baby+Company…

That weight you’ve gained will soon become a clear baby bump. Pregnancy starts to feel very real this trimester! We’ll be working with you to stay as healthy as possible as you get ready for birth and life with a newborn. Along with your usual check-ups, your care includes:

  • A personalized care visit (30 minutes) to map out a wellness plan just for you. You’ll set your own health goals and decide how to reach them. Maybe you’ll eat one more vegetable every day, or sign up for one of our exercise classes. We’ll create an online to-do list to keep you on track between visits.
  • A group visit (90 minutes) to look at the entire journey ahead of you. We’ll cover all the bases from your baby’s development to how you’ll share baby care at home. This discussion will help you feel prepared and confident about the future.

your 3rd trimester at Baby+Company…

You’re in the homestretch now! To prepare for the big day, we offer our own childbirth classes and refresher classes for experienced parents. Your prenatal care includes:

  • A group visit that’s packed with practical tips for coping with pregnancy discomforts…picking a pediatrician…care of newborns and their moms…introducing your baby to siblings…and more.
  • Two personalized care planning visits that focus on staying healthy and making a birth plan. We’ll help you consider the pros and cons of all your birth options – at our center and at the hospital – so you can choose what’s right for you.

At our center, you’ll be in a homey birth suite with watchful guidance from your midwife who stays with you the whole time. If there’s a need for more care, we’ve already teamed up with a nearby hospital for quick and seamless transfers. If you prefer, you can have your prenatal care with us and plan a hospital birth.

We’re here to help you have the birth you want.

welcome your baby

birth at a Baby+Company birth center...

When you arrive in labor, your care team will be waiting and you’ll feel the benefits of all your preparation for this moment.

The constant support of your midwife will keep you calm as labor unfolds. You’ll have a choice of methods to soothe pain…deep soaking tubs for labor and water birth…nitrous oxide… TENS units…birth balls and stools…pilates bars…sterile water papules…extra-large showers…essential oils…massage…and moving as you wish. These are methods that work.

You can have as many family and friends in your suite as you wish – or let them relax in our comfortable waiting room. Our kitchen is available for everyone to use, too.

If you want an epidural for pain, or if your condition changes, we’re prepared to move you quickly to the hospital nearby. In some centers, our midwives will be able to support you through birth at the hospital, too.

Your birth. Your terms. We really do mean it.

celebrate

home with your newborn with support from Baby+Company…

There’s a lot to celebrate, but we know a little baby brings big changes, too. That’s why we continue to support your whole family after birth…

  • On day 1, we’ll check in with a video call.
  • On day 2, we’ll pay you a home visit if you live within our visiting area. We’ll examine you and your baby and check to see how your family is doing with all the change.
  • By day 7, you’ll take your baby to meet your pediatrician. And we’ll make sure all the health records get there before you do.
  • About 6 weeks after birth, we’ll see you in our office for your check-up. (We hate goodbyes, so we really hope you’ll continue your well-woman care with us!)
  • Anytime after birth, we welcome you to stay connected with the community of parents gathering for our classes, workshops and groups. Join a New Moms Group. Come do yoga with your baby, and much more – all here for you at Baby+Company.
