We are honored to serve families prenatally, during their births and postpartum. Our Certified Professional Midwives Linda Healey and Audra Post have a combined 40+ years of experience!
Prenatal visits are held in your home or our Battle Creek office, with an emphasis on assessing your pregnancy, helping you to adjust lifestyle choices if needed, and suggesting natural prevention for common discomforts of pregnancy. The goal is to help you stay low-risk, improving your chances to birth safely and happily at home.
Our goal is to sensitively and skillfully guide the course of labor, birth and your time with your new baby. Home birth midwives also facilitate the initiation of breastfeeding and examine the newborn head-to-toe after birth. You'll get to know both midwives and one of us (occasionally both of us!) will attend your birth.
Home birth is not for every family, but it can be an intimate, loving experience. We will individualize our care to your needs and hopes for your birth.
Our home birth midwives primarily serve clients in Battle Creek, Charlotte, Vermontville, Marshall and Battle Creek, Michigan. We also occasionally accept clients in Galesburg/Augusta and Kalamazoo.
