Birth clients will need to have these printed and complete before our first meeting.
- New client informed consent
- Financial Agreement
- Transport Plan
- Signature page for informed consents-we will go over these together
- Photo release for birth pictures-to let me know if we can use birth pics in photo albums or on Facebook or on the website.
My fees are something we discuss at our consult, but because of situations I have experienced for the first time in the last few years, I am now going to require that HALF of the fee be paid by 20 weeks and the remaining balance must be paid by the 36 week home visit. If the balance has not been paid by then, I will not be attending the birth and incur more expenses for a non-paying client.
I belong to MANA (Midwives Alliance of North America) and participate in a statistics project so that not only can I keep up with my own birth outcomes, but data can be collected to document how midwives in general are performing. Would you please read the document below be prepared to give me verbal permission to include your pregnancy/birth information as part of the statistics project?
It is important that you try to be on time for your appointments, as I sometimes book them back to back and I want you to receive all the time you need to be seen and ask questions. If you feel you are going to be late, please call and see what my appointment book looks like or reschedule.
Because nutrition is such an important facet of your prenatal care, I include a handout for you to download and keep track of your meals/snacks. This is very helpful in determining if you are getting enough protein and other nutritious foods! You may want to keep a journal for a full week before we meet so we can go over diet and nutrition.
Also, I am learning more about the use of Essential Oils, both for aromatherapy and for medicinal use. I became a distributor for Young Living oils because I believe their quality is unparalleled. If you wish to purchase any, it is cheaper just to join and become a distributor yourself. When I joined, I started with the "Everyday Oils Kit" which is probably some of the most commonly used oils to start with and a good all around set. Click here to join. You will be receiving some samples during pregnancy to try!
The Midwifery Model of Care is very different from the medical model. Below is a brochure explaining some of the differences.
I have several 6 ft. round pools that are plenty adequate for birth. They are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. I just ask that you order the disposable liner for it here: Click here to order the liner.
