Midwifery is a health profession that deals with pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period, as well as the sexual and reproductive health of women throughout their lives.
At Midwife360 we are committed to providing the Midwifery Model of Care which by definition means evidence-based medicine. We support every pregnant client to have a functional medicine consult (preferably at the beginning of their journey) with Palm Beach Acupuncture and Regenerative Medicine.
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 patients. 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 patient in anticipation of having a very intimate, personal experience with them. We get to know your birthing preferences and strive to meet them with every family.
LABOR & BIRTH
We strive to ensure you are fully aware and prepared for the birth you desire through our hour-long prenatal visits and the childbirth education course you choose.
We currently provide birth services in your home or a homelike location within our service area of your choosing.
When we come to you for labor and birth we carry all the standard supplies, equipment, and medications used in the hospital, including oxygen, IV supplies and fetal monitoring doppler, to name a few, for your newborn as well as the necessities for postpartum care.
We have several doulas that we work with a lot and can recommend many more in our community. We strongly recommend that you hire a doula, especially if this is your first birth or your first home birth. We prefer that you work with a doula that is experienced, empathetic, and a home birth momma; one who is committed to helping each client have the most comfortable labor and birth possible. Gina Conner with First Light Doula is highly recommended as are the doulas who work with The Orchid Nest. We also have a list of low or no cost doulas if money is a concern.
what to expect from a doula
After assisting you to birth your newborn we ensure you feel comfortable and well supported beyond your routine care check ups. We are here to ensure the normal healing of your body as it journeys through motherhood and answer any questions about these changes.
We are blessed to have an IBCLC certified lactation specialist on staff. Phoebe Barouk, IBCLC/CNM is available for home, office, or virtual lactation consults.
She offers a 3-part, 2-hour breastfeeding class that is free to M360 clients and a minimal cost to those who are not having a baby with us.
All of the midwives are capable of assisting with lactation and Jennifer Carvallo, CLC/CNM is trained but no longer certified as a lactation consultant. For the tough cases, we recommend Phoebe!

There is nothing more concerning than having a newborn that is losing or not gaining weight. When your dream is exclusive breast feeding and you are facing the reality of having to supplement in order to grow your baby, you want an experienced and dedicated lactation consultant who has the same desires as you for feeding your baby – whatever that looks like. It could be exclusive breastfeeding, exclusive breastmilk in a bottle, or a combination. Sometimes the problem lies with tight oral tissues also known as tongue- or lip-tie. We refer to the pediatric dental specialist, Dr Saadia Mohammed of Palm Beach Pediatric Dentistry as our tongue tie specialist of choice.
