*Consultation 

 

As a partnership, getting to know our clients as much as they get to know us is essential. During the consultation, we will ask you questions to understand the type of support you are looking for and if we can meet your needs. Be prepared to discuss anything you found interesting or intriguing, classes you have taken, or even things you have heard from your friends or family that made you feel scared. These will help us understand what it will be like to work with you and how we can best support you during your birth journey. Open communication helps us know what support you seek and if/how we can fill that role

*Prenatal appointments

During prenatal appointments, our team provides education on labor positions, techniques, and autonomous care while getting to know you.  

 *Labor & Delivery 

Congratulations on your exciting journey to motherhood! We understand that the process of labor and delivery can be overwhelming. That's why we offer text and call support during early labor and will arrive as soon as you need us. Our experienced team of radical professionals is committed to providing motherly support and relaxation techniques and assisting you in managing your discomfort during labor.

 

We value the role of your partner and work alongside them to support you both on this beautiful journey. We suggest you contact us when you are in labor, and we will join you during active labor. You will be free to move around as needed, eat what you would like when you would like, and relax in whatever way feels good to your body. Hope Birth & Beyond is dedicated to facilitating your birth, and our combination of support and comfort will make this experience more manageable.

 

We prioritize your and your baby's well-being. Our team is committed to ensuring your labor and delivery process is as comfortable and safe as possible. Hope Birth & Beyond offers pool rentals, radical birth support, doulas, birth photography, and the birth experience you've always wanted, where you are the primary decision maker. 

 Prenatal visits typically occur every four weeks, two weeks, then weekly, depending on your needs and EDD.

**Philosophy of Care

Birth is not a medical event. Birth is Birth. Let’s take back birth.

Radical midwifery care is a nurturing, sacred, hands-on approach that provides comprehensive prenatal care and education, guides labor and birth, addresses complications, and cares for normal, healthy newborns. Midwives are experts in normal pregnancy and childbirth who develop a trusting relationship with their clients, resulting in confident, supported labor and birth. This approach is based on the philosophy that pregnancy and birth are everyday life events and have been proven to reduce the incidence of birth injury, trauma, and cesarean section. 

A Radical midwife is a birth worker who supports and honors the truth of those she serves. Birth belongs to women. Women own birth. The more I immerse myself in the birthing experience, the more I believe that only the birthing person should be the decision-maker. As birth professionals, we hold a safe and supportive space, provide education, give love and embrace, and offer additional skills if needed. Giving birth is a natural ability that is inherently part of our DNA. We lose faith in ourselves when we allow fear and regulations to take over. My goal is to be a knowledgeable and compassionate advocate for birthing people, not for the state or any governing body.

   - Hope Marie.

 

The Midwives Model of Care™ includes:

 

  • Monitoring the physical, psychological, and social well-being of the mother throughout the childbearing cycle

  • providing the mother with individualized education, counseling, and prenatal care, continuous hands-on assistance during labor and delivery, and postpartum support

  • minimizing technological interventions 

  • identifying and referring women who require obstetrical attention

I believe that pregnancy and birth are sacred, fundamentally normal physiological processes.  I commit to respecting and protecting the birth space, allowing labor to take its normal course to help each woman birth naturally, safely, and confidently.  A laboring woman needs to feel private, safe, and unobserved, and as such, I work hard to provide subtle but effective observation only as needed and desired.  Essential components of holistic care include attentive, skilled, and evidence-based support, establishing a caring atmosphere, limiting unnecessary interventions, educating clients thoroughly, and respecting, above all else, the rights of the pregnant person to make decisions about their care.  

*Prenatal follow-up  4-6 postpartum visits for you and baby in your home after your birth to share with you and listen to your birth story, aid in breastfeeding support, and listen and help with your needs as you adjust to your new bundle of joy.
