Prenatal Care


Regular, personalized prenatal care is the key to a healthy pregnancy and safe delivery.At Tierra Madre Midwifery, prenatal visits are about an hour long, and include information and counseling


about nutrition, exercise, preparing for childbirth and parenthood, babies and breastfeeding, or anything else you may want to talk about.

Clients and their families have plenty of time to ask questions, share concerns, and discuss any recommended tests or procedures, so you can make informed choices every step of the way. If questions or concerns arise between scheduled appointments, we are always only a phone call away, and can answer your questions on the spot or arrange a visit.

At each prenatal, we perform a thorough exam to make sure you and your baby are healthy and no problems are arising that may need special attention. If it seemsappropriate or is desired, we can provide the same diagnostic testing you may get in a physician’s office, but we generally start out with a few standard screening tests, and go from there.

We can provide you with referrals to other health care specialists if necessary, and in the event that a homebirth becomes inappropriate for any reason,  can continue to offer advocacy and support for your delivery in a hospital.
