Childbirth is a magical experience that women have the honor of experiencing. For some mothers, having this experience in a hospital is not for them as it can be a stressful environment. As a home birth midwife in Bedminster, NJ I offer services beginning at preconception counseling, prenatal care, home birth or home water birth and postpartum care for both the mother and baby. Several of my clients ask about having a pediatrician present for the birth of their child. Since I am a Licensed, Certified Professional Home Birth Midwife serving Bedminster, NJ, I am qualified to care for your newborn immediately after birth. Still, it is recommended that you have a pediatrician on call in case any issues arise.
