Tree of Life Midwives are here to bring compassionate individualized midwifery care to you. Now offering prenatal, labor, birth, gynecologic, postpartum, and newborn care in your home. Tired of feeling rushed and not having your questions answered? Care in your home is unhurried and is focused on YOU and your family.
Prenatal care is a time to get to know one another. At our initial visit, we will do a thorough history to determine your risk factors, make a plan for your care, and discuss how best to meet your needs. You can still access all of the standard options for pregnancy screening such as labs and ultrasound, when planning an out of hospital birth. In fact, this is part of our ongoing risk assessment during your pregnancy. Our goal is to help you have a healthy pregnancy and birth. Occasionally this may include referral to another provider, or a change of plan for place of birth.
Labor and Birth
Worried about giving birth on the way to the hospital? Let us come to you! Labor and birth in your own environment. We will bring our supplies. Afterwards we will clean up and tuck you in to spend time with your newborn.
Postpartum & Newborn Care
Postpartum and newborn care is provided in your home. Your midwives will file your newborn's birth certificate and you can obtain a copy from the Texas Vital Statistics Office in person, online, or by mail. We provide all of the state mandated newborn services including Vitamin K & Erythromycin at birth, as well as newborn screening, hearing screening, and CCHD screening at your follow up visit. Postpartum is the "4th trimester" and it is a time of growing and learning for you and your newly expanded family. We are here to support you and connect you with the resources you need to successfully navigate this time.
As the only CPM/CNM team in San Antonio, Tree of Life Midwives is able to offer both routine well woman care and abnormal problem visits from menarche to menopause.
