We, Karen and Martine, started a midwifery/home birth practice because we both feel committed to caring for women and families throughout a woman’s life cycle. Women deserve the right to be heard and cared for in a sensitive, loving manner. We, as women, midwives and mothers (Karen had three home births), believe in your innate ability to nurture your own and your baby’s spirit and body during pregnancy, birth and beyond.
We provide personalized care with cultural sensitivity. We encourage an open dialog regarding all plans of care, offering true shared decision making.
We’ll talk to you before pregnancy to help you identify your needs and resources. We’ll do your regular PAP screening and well-woman visit in your home. We can discuss and provide all methods of birth control including natural family planning. We promote preventive health care (screening, nutrition, exercise, lifestyle changes and stress reduction). Our services are provided in the privacy and comfort of your home. If medical complications were to arise, we have hospital privileges. We speak French, Haitian Creole, and Spanish.
