Pregnancy Care

At Hua Moon Women’s Health, we believe mothers and midwives are partners in promoting a healthy outcome for mother and baby. Together we carefully monitor the progress of your pregnancy and offer postpartum support.

Midwives Model of Care

The Midwives Model of Care is based upon the principles of Evidence-Based Practice and shared decision making and includes:

  • Monitoring the physical, psychological and social well-being of the mother throughout the childbearing cycle;
  • Providing the mother with individualized education, counseling, and prenatal care, continuous hands-on assistance during labor and delivery, and postpartum support;
  • Minimizing technological interventions; and
  • Identifying and referring women who require obstetrical attention.
  • Providing women with evidence-based rationale behind common pregnancy and newborn standards of care.

Prenatal Care

As midwives, Sharon and Colleen devote time and energy into building personal relationships with every patient. At every step of your pregnancy, our staff will be your partners to discuss options, hopes, fears and birthing preferences. Prenatal appointments include discussions on prenatal nutrition, exercise, vitamins, herbs, supplements, and other beneficial measures you can take to ensure your optimal health. 

For expectant mothers, Hua Moon Women’s Health recommends regular prenatal care appointments including:

  • One prenatal visit every four weeks until you are 28 weeks pregnant
  • One prenatal visit every two weeks until you are 36 weeks. If you plan to give birth at the hospital, the remainder of your prenatal care will be transferred to your provider at the hospital at this time.

Prenatal appointments may include:

  • Discuss birthing preferences, concerns and interests
  • Review family and medical history;
  • Assessment of risk factors for home birth
  • Vital health screening including; weight, blood pressure, urinalysis, temperature, pulse, nutrition
  • Assessment of fetal growth activity, position and heartbeat
  • Performance of or referral for laboratory tests as needed including pap smear or other vaginal cultures, laboratory testing of antibodies, blood type, STI status, CBC, non-invasive prenatal testing, other genetic screenings, ultrasound and screening for Gestational Diabetes

Prenatal/Birthing classes

Hua Moon Women’s Health offers a 2.5 hour prenatal/birthing class appropriate for all families approximately every 6 weeks or as needed.

Please call the office 808-631-2682 for the schedule. 

Postpartum Support

Midwifery care acknowledges that birth is a beginning and that holistic care allows for you to rest, heal, and be cared for during your first few weeks postpartum. Sharon or Colleen will work with you to create a solid support plan for this crucial healing and bonding time. Depending on your location some postnatal visits may be done in your home. 

Postpartum Appointments

Postpartum appointments at Hua Moon Women’s Health may include:

  • Breastfeeding support

  • Baby weight checks

  • Emotional and physical health check-in for new moms

  • Discussion of pelvic floor changes, urinary incontinence or other postnatal symptoms

  • Birth control prescriptions or family planning help

  • Questions and answers for any postnatal symptom or experience you or baby may have
