Holistically serving the health needs of women
Our Midwife and Healthcare Services
All along the way we are vigilant to the results of tests, the recommendations of the MDs we collaborate with, and the needs and wants of our clients. The purpose of prenatal care is first and foremost the search for signs of disease or malfunction in mom or baby that would benefit from medical management, secondarily, and very important for home birth, it is a vehicle to get to know the client in anticipation of having a very intimate, personal experience with them.
We have two Doulas that we work with who take turns caring for our clients. We will assign a doula when you first sign up. The Basic Doula Package includes the following services. Add-on services are available, please ask your doula for more information.
Our Doulas are experienced, empathetic, and homebirth mommas. They are committed to helping each client have the most comfortable labor and birth possible.

Midwife360 is staffed by CNMs who are trained in all aspects of office gynecology. We accept nearly all major insurances for both gynecology and pregnancy services.
There are two approaches to maternity care – the Midwifery Model and the Medical Model. Some consumers are confused because not all midwives practice the Midwifery Model, and not all MDs practice the Medical Model. The basic difference between them is that the Medical Model is focused on preventing, diagnosing, and treating complications in pregnancy; visits are typically short; interventions such as induction are quickly suggested. While the Midwifery Model seeks to protect, support, and avoid interfering with the natural course of pregnancy and birth. In this model, the midwife is also always watchful for potential complications and adjusts the plan of care accordingly.
Only healthy, relatively low-risk pregnant people should birth at home. The Midwifery Model also places high importance on the experience of the pregnant/birthing person in addition to supporting their physical safety.
