Our Approach to Midwifery Care
The Homespun Midwives take great honor in being able to serve growing families through the incredible journey of the childbearing year. Our philosophy of care is rooted in the knowledge that pregnancy, birth and postpartum are normal life events. We form trusting relationships with our clients who are active participants in their care and who find empowerment through this experience. We are able to blend the ancient wisdom of the oldest profession – utilizing herbs, and other natural therapies, as well as being hands-off as much as possible – with the new evidence and technology of modern medicine – which allows us to detect any deviations from normal and intervene as appropriate. We tailor an experience that supports the natural physiologic childbirth process – one driven by the innate human capacity of the mother and baby, while protecting their safety.
As certified professional midwives (CPMs), licensed in the state of Oregon, we practice as autonomous healthcare providers. We work within a network of relationships with other maternity care providers who can offer consultation and collaboration as needed. People who birth under the care of midwives experience fewer birth injuries, traumas, and cesarean sections, as well as report higher satisfaction with their birth experiences. Our clients are dear to us and the relationships we form last long beyond our final six-week check-up.
Our Professional Midwifery Fee is $4800. Please contact us for more information if you are on OHP or require financial hardship assistance.
