We have midwifery services for every Vashon family.
Please reach out to discuss which midwifery program may best suit your needs.
the midwifery program
Full spectrum, home birth midwifery services for low risk birthing people who would like to give birth on Vashon. Services include exceptional prenatal, postpartum, and newborn clinical care. Additionally, labor and delivery are attended at home with a licensed midwifery provider and other qualified health professionals who assist in a gentle and safe physiological birth, and proper facilitation of a transfer to higher level services (ie hospital) should complications arise. This type of care is oriented towards education, preventative health, nutritional and lifestyle guidance, shared decision-making and informed consent.
Collaborative Perinatal Care
Our “Co-Care” services are available to all families, regardless of where they plan to give birth. Offered as a bundle of services, or selected individually, based on the client’s needs. Services include prenatal care, childbirth doula, postpartum and newborn care, and are provided on island, in our clinic or from the client’s home.
Doula: Childbirth & Postpartum
A childbirth doula is a skilled professional providing emotional support, information and education, and physical comfort to birthing people before, during, and shortly after childbirth. A postpartum doula is here to accompany newly postpartum families through the transitional time at home with a new baby.
In depth, one-on-one lactation support from the client’s home or in our clinic office. Our lactation services are available to all island families and are provided by licensed midwives.
“Pathways to Pregnancy” is a comprehensive program that addresses fertility, nutrition, preconception health screening and testing, genetic health screening, counseling and conception support through IUI (intrauterine insemination) or referring for IVF if necessary.
Waterbirth Tub Rental
Our tub rental fee includes a premium birth tub (includes set up and clean up).
collaborative health partnerships
While midwifery care is at the heart of health and wellness in the childbearing year, there are many other essential support services that we want all pregnant people to have unhindered access to. These complementary therapies ensure our clients can prepare and repair for full spectrum wellness before, during and after birth.
Integrated Mental Health Program
Personal assessment and ongoing treatment provided by a Clinical Marriage and Family Therapist specializing in perinatal mental health. These services are easily integrated into routine prenatal and postpartum care and are available to all clients. Individual and couples sessions are available.
Functional Nutritional Therapy - NEW!
Our customized functional nutrition services are available for the whole family. While we see individuals for a variety of nutritional needs, we have a specialty perinatal program that includes 5 sessions from preconception through postpartum. Seek support in managing common nutritional concerns in pregnancy like morning sickness, fatigue, and more!
Additional Support Services
We are currently referring out for all physical wellness therapies and comprehensive reproductive care. Please reach out for a personal recommendation, or see our "Resources" page for a list of wonderful providers available to childbearing families on Vashon Island.
