I had a great experience with Birthways! My doula was kind, experienced, well informed and very easy to be around as I/we adjusted to being a family.

Early Pregnancy or Pre-Conception Consultation
Pregnancy brings with it many decisions: Who should I choose to see for prenatal and delivery care? What changes should I make in my diet? Will I choose a doctor or midwife, hospital or home birth? Which prenatal tests should I get? What should I read? How should I proceed with exercise? Will I need to alter my plans for work or travel during pregnancy?
Lots of information is available on these topics, online, in hundreds of advice books, and in the form of advice from friends and family. Your doctor or midwife can help with some of these questions, but frequently, there just isn’t enough time in the appointment. Then things really get confusing when you learn that the ‘experts’ don’t agree! It is certainly overwhelming to find your way through it all to make the best choices for you and your baby.
Our instructors are not only evidence-based perinatal educators but also experienced providers with hands-on experience in all of the major area hospitals and insight into the birth options available to you. Many of our educators are also Certified Professional Midwives, or other health professionals.
