Midwifery Services

Northshore Midwives & Lactation Consulting offers comprehensive care for women throughout Pregnancy, Birth and Postpartum. I maintain a small midwifery and lactation consulting practice that provides personalized and holistic care.

 

The comprehensive care includes:

 

  • A free pre-conception visit
  • A free consultation to meet me, learn what midwifery is all about and let me answer any questions that you may have

 

During your prenatal-care you can expect the following:

 

  • Initial prenatal visit
  • Routine visits
  •  Every 4 weeks from your initial visit to 28 weeks
  •  Every 2 weeks from 28 weeks to 36 weeks
  •  Weekly from 36 weeks to 41 weeks
  •   Every 2-3 days from 41-42 weeks
  • Visits lasting 45-60 minutes
  • You are offered  the same tests that you would have access to in a physician’s office, such as genetic screening and gestational diabetes
  • I provide you with thorough information about each screening and test so that you can make an educated decision based on informed consent
  • Ultrasounds will be offered early in your pregnancy, at around 20 weeks and again at around 41 weeks
  • Blood draws are done in our office
  • Pap smears and infection testing
  • Family planning counseling
  • Nutritional counseling
  • There is a Midwife on call, available to you 24 hours a day, every day of the year

 

 

After your baby is born you can expect the following:

 

  • Complete well-child care for your newborn for the first two weeks of life
  • Home visits for the first week after birth
  • Office visits between 1-4 weeks after birth
  • Final office visit between 6-8 weeks after birth

 

Northshore Midwives & Lactation Consulting has strong working relationships with obstetricians and perinatologists at our local hospitals. Should a situation arise during your prenatal, birth or postpartum care that increases your risk,  I will consult with one of these physicians or transfer your care to one of the local hospitals. If transfer to a physician is needed, my existing relationships with these providers improves the transfer interactions significantly.

 

Northshore Midwives & Lactation Consulting is a preferred provider for most insurance companies.  Please call the office for any questions regarding your individual plan and I will direct you to our Midwifery billing specialist.

 

Northshore Midwives & Lactation Consulting is conveniently located near downtown Bothell at the Country Village.
