Midwifery Care

Out-of-hospital midwives are experts in uninterrupted physiological birth.

Midwives provide holistic, relationship-centered healthcare

during pregnancy, birth, and postpartum.

My goal is not just to provide a safe and positive experience for the people I work with, but also for people to be heard in the kind of care that resonates with their culture and personhood.

Connie does not have hospital privileges, but will work collaboratively with your hospital based care provider who does.  This includes 10 prenatal appointments in my home office in Monona, starting at any point in pregnancy.  Followed by 1 in home postpartum visit and 1 in-office postpartum visits. Additionally, you would be able to reach me via email and phone in between appointments.  

This can be a great option for someone who needs to have a hospital birth, but desires the holistic experience of out-of-hospital midwifery care in companionship with prenatal care with a hospital based care provider.
