Women were created to bring life into the world, but being a life-giver not only comes with the beauty and purpose of nurturing life – but it also comes with its own challenges. The experience of bearing a child in the womb for nine long months is extremely rewarding yet can be painful, difficult, and even dangerous in some cases. For this reason, midwifery in Saint Paul, Minnesota plays a very significant role in ensuring women and babies are supported throughout.
As an essential part of the healthcare system, Joy Midwifery LLC is here to ensure that childbearing women, newborn infants, and families receive a continuum of compassionate, skilled, and quality care during pre-conception, pregnancy, birth, and postpartum.
- Preconception Counseling
During a preconception counseling appointment, family history, risk factors, medical conditions, lifestyle practices, and other women’s health issues are all discussed. This appointment is an important part of planning a safe, healthy, and happy pregnancy.
- Prenatal Care
Healthcare providers, be it a doctor or a midwife, will give a schedule of prenatal visits as an important part of staying healthy during pregnancy. These regular checkups and routine testing aim to promote the health and well-being of the mother and the baby.
- Postpartum Visits
The postpartum period or the first six weeks after childbirth is both an exciting and challenging time. It is a period of healing and adjustment, especially for the new or first-time mom. During postpartum, housecall midwives can provide routine postpartum checkups, breastfeeding support, and postpartum depression screening.
From planning a healthy pregnancy to prenatal care in Minnesota and even up to postpartum visits, a private midwife can deliver personalized and one-on-one quality midwifery in the comfort of home. Contact us directly at 612-662-5531 or Info@Joymidwifery.com to book an appointment.
