Home Birth

Having a home birth is a personal decision women and their families can choose for a variety of reasons. The best way to find out if home birth is the right option for you is to meet with Sharon or Colleen for a consultation.

During a home birth our primary role is to ensure the health and safety of all members of the birth team. Some things we do include:

  • Checking progress of labor (vaginal exams done only when necessary);
  • Assessing the position of baby in-utero;
  • Monitoring fetal well-being through intermittent fetal monitoring with a Doppler
  • Surveying the condition of the birthing person and checking in with their needs
  • Checking vital signs;
  • “Catching” the baby or assisting another member of the birth team to “catch”;
  • Helping with the delivery of the placenta & controlling bleeding;
  • Monitoring the uterus and bleeding;
  • Assessing for any perineal tears and repairing them
  • Performing a thorough examination of the baby;
  • Cord cutting;
  • Cleaning up the birth linens and preparing the postpartum bed;
  • Ensuring the birthing person has urinated, has food and drink, and is stable;
  • Offering Vitamin K and eye prophylaxis;
  • Assisting with nursing/breastfeeding as needed.
