Kindred Holistic Midwifery is a concierge midwifery care and healing practice. Offering quality personalized care is a cornerstone value of Kindred Holistic Midwifery. Combining evidence-based guidelines with traditional and alternative medicine supports the framework for keeping your pregnancy and homebirth low risk, resulting in a healthy, safe outcome.
At each prenatal visit, you can expect routine vital signs, lab work if needed, and a discussion regarding any questions or concerns you have, or research you’ve done. We will review any complications as they arise. Routine labs are drawn at the initial visit, 28 weeks, and at 36 weeks. They include but are not limited to: a prenatal profile, urinalysis and urine culture, screenings for STDs, gestational diabetes, and GBS. NIPT (non-invasive prenatal testing) is a diagnostic tool used for determining any genetic disorders that may impact your pregnancy and is available for those who have qualifying risk factors at an additional cost. A 2nd trimester fetal anatomy scan contains vital information to ensure a low risk pregnancy and delivery, and therefore is an essential part of our practice. At 37 weeks, a scheduled home visit is an opportunity for the client to show the midwife around your ideal birth environment. For labor, I am accompanied by an assistant who serves as my second set of eyes, ears, and hands. I am prepared with my equipment and tools necessary for a safe delivery including but not limited to oxygen and medications to manage potential postpartum complications. There are several options for additional services within my realm of expertise, and referrals, resources, and recommendations are provided for circumstances that require diagnostic, specialized, or collaborative care.
As an authentic, trustworthy, and reasonable practitioner, I approach my clients with compassion, a willingness to listen, and a sense of humor. Providing a space for effective and clear communication is key for developing a mutually respectful and trusting provider-client relationship.

In the Hispanic culture, as well as others around the world, a cuarentena is a 40 day period (or 6 weeks) when family members provide food, cleaning, and childcare to lighten the load so bonding time with baby and rest are the main priorities of any new or seasoned parent after the birth. Postpartum support is not a luxury. It is a necessity and a crucial time of integration, healing, and renewal.
