Empowering New Beginnings, Naturally.
At BirthWise, we champion natural birthing experiences, guided by certified and experienced midwives boasting over two decades of collective expertise. Our approach is rooted in a philosophy of individualized care, embracing shared decision-making across every phase of your journey – from pregnancy to postpartum and newborn care.
Our midwives at BirthWise offer a unique blend of personal attention and exceptional care, seldom found in modern maternity systems. We are committed to enlightening women about their birthing options and empowering them to make informed and confident choices. We don’t just provide care; we listen with empathy, communicate possibilities, support your decisions, and address your questions and concerns with the utmost sensitivity and respect.
We offer comprehensive wellness care and community birth services. Our experienced midwife practices independently, collaborating with area hospitals, physicians, and healthcare facilities to provide personalized care.

Yes, home birth is safe for low-risk pregnancies when supported by skilled and experienced midwives. Our midwives carry emergency equipment such as oxygen, suction, resuscitative equipment, medications for postpartum bleeding management, and IVs. We closely monitor both the mother and baby throughout the birthing process, and in the event of a hospital transfer, we will accompany you to maintain support and continuity of care.
Education and preparation are essential to managing pain during natural childbirth. Engage in open communication with your midwife during prenatal visits, take childbirth education classes, and access resources such as books or online information. At home births, you’ll have the freedom of movement, the ability to eat and drink, and personalized one-on-one support from your midwife. Additionally, water labor and birth can provide natural pain relief and relaxation, further assisting in coping with the discomfort.
Absolutely! At Birthwise, we support family-centered care and encourage you to involve your loved ones in your home birth experience. Having the people you care about most present during your birth can provide additional emotional support and contribute to a positive and memorable experience. We are happy to accommodate your preferences and help create a supportive environment for everyone involved.
While birth can be messy, our team at Birthwise is well-prepared to manage the process. We provide a list of items to help maintain a clean environment during the birth. Afterward, we will clean and tidy up, leaving no trace of the birth except for your beautiful new baby.
After your baby is born, we will complete the necessary vital records paperwork for your child’s birth certificate and assist you in applying for a social security card to be issued.
Many insurance companies do cover home births attended by midwives. When you begin your care with us, we will provide you with a detailed insurance billing packet and help you determine what your insurance plan will cover. We are committed to supporting families in navigating the financial aspects of home birth to ensure a smooth experience.
