Childbirth is miraculous for sure. It can also be a little scary if you don’t feel fully informed and ready. That’s why having a supportive midwife is crucial. If you’re looking for a personalized and empowering approach to childbirth, Beautiful Births Midwifery offers a compassionate and supportive option. Tara is a certified professional midwife that prioritizes the well-being of both you and your baby. She will provide comprehensive care throughout the pregnancy and birthing process. In this blog post, we will explore the essence of Beautiful Births and how she embraces the journey of childbirth.
Beautiful Births specializes in midwifery care for women during pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period. Led by experienced midwife, Tara Stephen, her practice emphasizes the importance of personalized care, informed decision-making, and nurturing support for expectant mothers. She has attended over 370 births since 2009 and expertly handled many complications. You can rest assured she has the educational background and experience to support you with whatever may come during your pregnancy and delivery.
One of the key pillars of Beautiful Births is its commitment to comprehensive prenatal care. During your pregnancy, you receive regular prenatal visits, where she conducts thorough health assessments, monitor fetal development, and provides essential education on nutrition and childbirth preparation. She schedules a full hour for prenatal appointments to allow time for any questions that you may have as well as time to chat and get to know each other.
Every mother’s birthing journey is unique, and Tara recognizes this by creating personalized birth plans tailored to your preferences and needs. She actively involves expectant mothers in the decision-making process, ensuring that their birthing experience aligns with their values and desires.
Beautiful Births is a home birth-centered practice. Home births provide a familiar and comfortable setting. Tara will come to your house when labor is established and you are ready for her to be there. Tara offers expertise in natural childbirth techniques, gentle birthing positions, and relaxation methods, ensuring you can embrace the power of your body during labor and delivery. After the birth, she stays to for 2 hours to continue to monitor both you and the baby. She’ll make sure you have something to eat and drink, help you take a shower if you would like, clean up, and even do a load of laundry.
If you would like a waterbirth you can use your own bathtub or birth tub, or you may use one of the birthing tubs she can provide. The great thing is that the inflatable birth tubs are included in her fee. She also has an AquaDoula tub, which is heated and will accommodate up to two people.
The care provided by Beautiful Births extends well beyond childbirth. She continues to support mothers during the postpartum period, offering guidance on newborn care, breastfeeding, and emotional well-being. This ongoing support ensures a smooth transition into motherhood and enhances the overall postpartum experience.
Beautiful Births celebrates the innate strength and wisdom of women, recognizing that childbirth is not just a physical event but a transformative journey of self-discovery and empowerment.
