A Sacred Journey Midwifery Services believes in the Midwifery Model of Care. Prenatal appointments are located in my office in Cypress, Texas and are interactive and personal. You will not be forced to wait for hours for your appointment, nor will you feel rushed. Appointments are scheduled for an hour each time. Each appointment includes assessing the fetal heart rate and the mother’s blood pressure, pulse, weight, urinalysis, fundal height measurement, fetal positioning, edema, emotional status, nutrition, discomforts and remedies as well as a time for education and questions. Labs are collected in office, and referral for ultrasounds are given. First time moms and moms seeking a vaginal birth after cesarean are welcome. Patients have access to my lending library, as well as after hours contact to me by phone, text or email.

I host a monthly group prenatal for all patients. Each group prenatal consists of a teaching topic such as comfort measures, optimal fetal positioning, breastfeeding, et cetera as well as a past patient coming to share her home birth story. It is a wonderful time to meet other home birth mamas!
