Holistic Focus & Promotion of Optimal Health
Joscelyn incorporates her years of study of natural medicine, nutrition, and holistic healthcare to enhance the health of your pregnancy. Pregnancy is a time of great changes that women experience in a multitude of ways. Herbs are powerful allies in maintaining health during pregnancy and setting the stage for a healthy delivery. Joscelyn works closely with other holistic practitioners in the community in collaboration to help you achieve the best possible pregnancy and birth outcome.
Continuity of Care & Access to Your Care Provider
The practice is available 24/7 during your pregnancy should issues arise. Joscelyn limits the number of births she accepts each month as she believes in providing the continuity care that has been proven to give the best pregnancy and birth outcomes.
In-Home Attendance of Your Birth
In her own home, a laboring woman’s need for support, privacy and safety during labor are intrinsically met. Women benefit from the one-on-one attendance provided by the midwife who has been caring for her throughout the pregnancy. This familiarity and comfort is not only emotionally beneficial, but this continuity of care has been proven to help women achieve good outcomes with lower rates of intervention. There are no routine or arbitrary timetables to govern your birth, so women are supported in discovering their body’s own unique way in giving birth.
Care During the Postpartum Period
Your midwife comes to your home a total of 4 five times after the birth to monitor the progression of normalcy for you and your baby. Joscelyn offers holistic treatments to promote healing of the mother, breastfeeding support, nutritional and herbal recommendations, and well-baby check-up’s help to support the mother and baby’s transition during this tender time.
At the end of your postpartum period, your 6-week appointment will be in the office. You can receive your annual exam as well discuss your birth control needs.
