All the well designed studies done to date have proven the safety of homebirth for low-risk women attended by a trained midwife. The midwife’s job is to recognize normal so completely that when the abnormal presents, we can refer our clients out to appropriate medical professionals for their further care or transfer to the hospital for appropriate intervention.
Giving birth at home has many advantages in addition to the safety for mother and baby: your own shower, bed, and food; increased comfort; freedom to move and walk; privacy and intimacy; everyone there is a guest in your home! Your husband/partner and other children can be as involved as you and they wish.
Morning Glory is a full-service midwifery practice, meaning we provide full prenatal care, care during labor and birth, a comprehensive newborn exam, and six weeks of postpartum care. While homebirth with a CPM is not covered by insurance in the state of GA (some insurances may cover Out of Network in SC), I accept multiple forms of payment, including credit cards and PayPal. Your fee is a global fee, meaning that it is all-inclusive. You get prenatal care, your birth, newborn exam, and postpartum care covered in my fee. There are no discounts for late to care, but discounts are available for medicaid clients, cash only pay, and early pay. I can help you find a way to afford a better birth.
If you are interested, please schedule a consultation. When you schedule it, please indicate the month your baby is due. Both partners must be present at the consultation.
Women really enjoy being in the water during their labor. The birth tub has been called “the midwife’s epidural”. Interested clients can borrow one of my two inflatable tubs, or purchase their own inflatable pool at a discount directly from me.
