Complete Home Birthing ServicesServices include:
Celesta works with each woman and her family to identify their unique physical, social and emotional needs.
She will start with a consultation in her home office where she will discuss your medical and menstrual history, previous births and your desires and expectations for this pregnancy and birth.
At this time she will also determine if you are a good candidate for home birth and if you are a good fit to work together throughout your pregnancy and birth.
If you and she decide to work together, an initial appointment will be set up, again in her home office, where she will conduct a physical exam and design a personalized care plan specifically for your needs. Throughout your pregnancy regular prenatal visits will continue at her home office with a visit to your home at around 37 weeks.
When your baby is ready to arrive, she will come to your home and assist with the delivery and remain until both mother and baby are stable.
There will also be a 24 hour postpartum home visit where she will schedule remaining
post partum appointments that are spread over a three month period.
If you're a healthy expectant mother having a normal pregnancy and you have no medical or obstetrical risk factors, giving birth at home may be an option for you. Giving birth at home allows you to labor and deliver in familiar and comfortable surroundings.
Support in water is one of the most beneficial things that can be offered to a woman in labor. The water provides a calming influence and a peaceful relaxed atmosphere. Women report that they enjoy their labors and find that the water allows complete freedom of movement and deep concentration.
"If you don't know your options, then you don't have any..."
