I offer thorough prenatal care including in depth health and nutrition counseling and education, baby assessments, maternal health assessments, and in-house lab work. An ultrasound around 20 weeks is common. Our prenatal visits together will help us set the stage for your ideal labor and birth. Women who have a healthy and low-risk pregnancy are cleared to have their birth at home.
Schedule of visits:
- Monthly until 28 weeks
- Bi-monthly 28 - 36 weeks
- Weekly 36 weeks - birth
Labor and Birth Support
Support is a crucial element to a successful labor and birth. I will be with you as you actively labor and give birth to your baby. I only offer midwifery care in out of hospital settings so I specialize in natural birth; offering water birth, home birth, and birth center birth.
Justine is happy to offer care to women seeking a VBAC or HBAC.
As your midwife I will visit and assess you and your new baby 1 day postpartum and at 1, 3 and 6 weeks. Thorough postpartum care for your emotional and physical needs, as well as extensive breastfeeding support are all key components of postpartum care. I am passionate about helping you successfully and confidently breastfeed your baby. If needed I will involved lactation consults or other healthcare providers for increased support and guidance.
Well Woman Care
Pure Birth offers care to women at all stages of life. I offer routine paps, breast exams, nutrition counseling, STD screening and related blood work.
Fertility awareness and birth control counseling is also something I provide. I specialize in diaphragm fitting as a favorable, safe, easy-to-use and hormone-free form of birth control.
