Midwives are dedicated to providing supportive, evidence-based care in pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. We offer annual gyn exams, family planning, sexual health and STI testing as well as breastfeeding support. We also provide support and medication management for uncomplicated perinatal mood disorders, incuding postpartum depression and anxiety.
Jennifer has over 20 years of being present at births, becoming a Certified Professional Midwife in 2005 and a Certified Midwife in 2010. She has been a NYS Licensed Midwife since 2011 and has practiced in both home settings and hospital.
Jennifer and Jean utilize a holistic approach to all care provided to our clients and families. In pregnancy we see our clients on a typical prenatal schedule, once monthly until 32 weeks, then every two weeks, and every week from 36 weeks until Birth. Postpartum visits are done in the home and we typically see you five times between the Birth and 6-week final visit.
We often use herbal preparations, teas, and salves made either by ourselves or trusted local sources.
We may also utilize homeopathic remedies when appropriate as well as Reiki for relaxation.
Essential oils have been used for thousands of years for a variety of purposes. The pure botanicals are ideal for emotional, physical, and spiritual wellness. Plant medicine is an important piece of the approach that we use in midwifery. Whether you diffuse oils for aromatherapy or clean your home with our Thieves cleaning line, you can benefit from these amazing pure essences. As a distributor for Young Living we can provide you with any of the products offered by this wonderful company.
