Emergency Care

Your midwife and assistants are trained in CPR and Neonatal Resuscitation and are prepared for emergency situations.

At any point during care – whether prenatally, during labor and birth, or postpartum, if circumstances arise requiring medical attention, you will be given options and support to facilitate medical consultation or transfer of care, depending on which is needed.

In the event that care must be transferred, your midwife will facilitate and guide transfer of care - whether urgent or non-emergent.  For non-emergent transfers, your midwife is available virtually for counsel and support.

For urgent transfers, your midwife accompanies you, providing care during the transition, and a comforting presence until the situation has been stabilized.

Postpartum follow up care is always completed with your midwife.

Our location is easily accessed off the 110 highway with enclosed, garage Valet parking.

Consultation visits are an hour long and include a Birth Center tour for those wishing to birth at the center, as well as a one-on-one meeting with Faith and our dedicated team. Virtual consultations are also available.

Looking forward to meeting with you and building your perfect care plan together!
