Home Birth MIDWIFERY Package
The home birth package includes prenatal care, labor and birth, and postpartum care.
Your prenatal care includes personal one-on-one prenatal visits in one of our two offices. We use these visits to get to know each other as well as measure your growing belly and listen to your baby's heartbeat.
LABOR & BIRTH
We attend your labor and birth in your home. Usually your birth will be attended by Marielle Tomlin, CNM and a birth assistant. Our goal is to arrive for your birth when you are in active labor and support you through active labor, transition, pushing, birth, and the immediate postpartum period. We usually leave your home about two to three hours postpartum when you and baby are settled and cozy in bed.
Our nurses will check on you and your new baby in your home for postpartum visits at 24-48 hours and 1-2 weeks after birth. We wholly believe in in-home postpartum care so mom and baby can focus on relaxing and bonding in a safe and comfortable space. Your final six weeks postpartum visit is with the Midwife in one of our offices.

"My experience with Marielle was nothing short of wonderful! She is the kind of midwife who genuinely cares about the Momma and family. She made me feel confident about having our 1st baby at home and did an amazing job at remaining professional while also being super friendly and relatable."
"Her presence was always calming and never stressful. She respected my desire for space during labor and offered advice and guidance when needed. I feel blessed that she delivered our first baby and would recommend WomanKind Midwifery to any expectant Momma!"
First Time Mom
"When I first became pregnant with our second child I spoke with and visited every midwifery practice in our area, but fell in love with Marielle and everyone in this practice.
This practice is nothing short of amazing. The belief that all women should be able to give birth safely and comfortably runs deep within its roots."
"I looked forward to each of my prenatal visits. I felt heard, informed, and that questions were welcomed. By the time labor rolled around I can honestly say my husband and I felt so confident and calm. The experience felt intimate. I felt safe, and calm, and everyone who was there had trust in my body to do the work it needed to do. My husband and I both are so eternally grateful."
Second Time Mom
"Marielle is the kindest presence. An absolutely incredible midwife and the best choice to grow our family!"
