Each visit with your Burlington midwife is a unique opportunity for you and your chosen support to learn about your body and your baby while building a trusting relationship. Midwives believe in the power of informed choices and will take time to walk you through every step and support your decisions. They will monitor you and your baby at each visit to ensure that you are both healthy, thriving, and show no signs of risk. Routine appointments will be only once a month until you are 28 weeks along. From 28-36 weeks, you will be seen every other week and then once a week from 36 weeks until delivery.
When your baby is ready to come into the world, whether in a hospital or in your home, two midwives will be present for delivery. One for you and the other for your baby. To ensure you and your baby are thriving, they will schedule in-home visits until you are six weeks postpartum. For added safety, midwives strive to work closely with Obstetricians and Pediatricians so that no matter the situation, they can ensure their Burlington clients receive the best possible care.

Midwives are the only prenatal care providers who offer home births as a hospital alternative for healthy and low-risk pregnancies.
