Care in your pregnancy for your home birth
Getting to know you I will see you for prenatal visits once every four weeks until 28 weeks; then once every two weeks until 36 weeks, with weekly visits thereafter until your baby is born.
All standard prenatal tests are offered to you and all but ultrasounds are available in the office. We talk about it all together and you and I decide as a team what tests might serve you and your pregnancy and baby best.
Getting to know all about you A visit in your home is scheduled around 36 weeks so I will be easily oriented to your home when it is time to attend you in birth.
Postpartum care for you and your baby happens at your home at one day, three days and one week; then in my office at three and six weeks.
If additional visits are necessary or something pops up in your pregnancy and/or postpartum, I see you as is important as well as when you want until your situation is back in balance.
"I've never known someone so briefly and loved so deeply as you. Ever. Thank you for your lovely card for Grace's birthday. She holds the little heart in her still-chubby hands and just stares. I will always, in all ways, be thankful that your hands gave her to me." -L.

"How much do I love Katherine? Where to begin? She has a beautiful and unusual sensitivity with babies and adults, a spirit unlike anyone else I've known. She connects with people deeply and authentically, and makes one feel loved and understood."
