We provide primary care services throughout your pregnancy, after your baby is born, and between births.When treating common causes of nausea, epigastric pain/gastroesophageal reflux, and chronic diseases, lifestyle modifications are considered the safest and first-choice therapy, followed by well-established low-risk therapies.
In addition to primary care, we coordinate your obstetrical care with physicians, who respect your birth plan, use minimum medical interventions, and who have low rates of C-sections and preterm births.
We also advocate on your behalf to ensure that you receive high quality, evidence based care throughout your pregnancy and birth.

Home Health Care
Clients are assigned a health worker who provides health education, health coaching, support, and patient advocacy throughout the pregnancy, birth, and postpartum periods during regular home health visits to ensure accomplish their birth goals. The relationship between the health worker and client is crucial to birth outcomes. Health workers make regular visits to clients' homes to screen for prenatal health risks such as blood pressure, temperature, weight gain, signs of premature birth and preeclampsia and other complications that may negatively affect the outcome of your birth.
After the baby is born the health worker returns to assist with breastfeeding and to check for health risks associated with infant and maternal death.
Prenatal Nutrition Education
We teach and coach you to eat healthy during your pregnancy so you gain adequate weight.
Overweight and obese women are at an increased risk of several pregnancy problems. These problems include gestational diabetes, high blood pressure, preeclampsia, preterm birth, and cesarean delivery. Babies of overweight and obese women also are at greater risk of certain problems, such as birth defects, macrosomia with possible birth injury, and childhood obesity.
Our plan of care includes Vitamin Angels prenatal vitamins that have been proven to reduce rates of preterm births, low birth weight babies, and infant death.
During delivery, our staff will be in constant and close proximity to you, providing comfort with pain-relief techniques including breathing techniques, relaxation techniques, massage, and laboring positions. They will serve as an advocate for you, encouraging and helping you to experience a positive and save birth.

Health workers continue to provide support in the home after the baby is born: including screening for birth defects, maternal complications, teaching parents how to care for an infant child, and providing breastfeeding counseling. Clients also receive a final primary care visit to prepare for their next birth.
