At BirthRoot Midwifery, you will receive care that is compassionate, holistic, and individualized. The Midwifery Model of Care is founded on a deep respect for clients and their families. This approach to care promotes health and helps prevent complications. Midwives who practice this model of care have excellent outcomes while providing safe individualized care. Important elements from this model of care that are incorporated into all services provided by BirthRoot Midwifery include true informed choice, shared decision making, time to address your questions and concerns, and education. I believe that you know your body better than anyone and I collaborate with you every step of the way. My holistic approach means that I use a spectrum of treatment options: from prescription medications to diet, exercise, stress management, and nutritional and herbal supplements.

Preconception Counseling
Focus on your health before becoming pregnant! Learn about habits or activities that may contribute to infertility or harm a developing fetus, self-care activities that will promote fertility and nurture future pregnancy health, conception timing, nutrition, reproductive life plans, and more.

Fertility Services
Whether you’re still thinking about conceiving or have already been trying for some time, holistic fertility care helps address your unique needs and provides you with appropriate information, resources, and ongoing support. Care includes personal and family health history and health assessment, appropriate labwork and testing (if needed), in-depth menstrual cycle charting, sperm donation options, and insemination (IUI and ICI). Please ask me about my Comprehensive Fertility Care Package.

Home Insemination
Intrauterine insemination (IUI) in the comfort and privacy of your own home. A well-timed IUI with frozen sperm gives you an 8-15% chance of becoming pregnant each cycle.

Birth Control and Pregnancy Options Counseling
Physical, social, emotional, and cultural aspects of your unique situation are addressed to come up with an individualized reproductive life plan and family vision. An in-depth discussion of your cycle patterns and lifestyle preferences is included to determine the best birth control option for you, including hormonal and non-hormonal options. If you are pregnant and would like to explore your options, I will discuss adoption, termination, and pregnancy/birth care. Information about and referrals to local providers and resources is included.

Termination and Miscarriage Support
The circumstances surrounding termination and miscarriage are unique for every person. Feelings of sadness, grief, and loss can come up immediately or may not emerge until years later. I offer a safe, caring, non-judgmental space to seek support and information following these difficult situations. You deserve the opportunity to heal, grow, and move forward.

Primary Care
Annual exams, breast/chest exams, pelvic exams, Paps, testing for sexually transmitted infections, etc. Visits include any necessary lab tests and referrals as needed. Nutrition and exercise counseling, herbal recommendations, and education about your body are included in all care provided.

Costs and Insurance
Initial appointments for new clients are $150. Appointments for established clients are $80. If you need labwork or imaging, the lab or imaging center will bill your insurance directly for any tests I order. There are no up-front, out-of-pocket charges for blood draws.

I am not in-network with any insurance companies, but I can give you claim forms to submit for out-of-network reimbursement. I can also provide you with a detailed invoice to submit to your HSA, if applicable. You can pay by personal check, cash, credit card, or PayPal. All major credit cards accepted; there is a 2% processing fee for credit/debit cards. Payment is due at the time of service.

Preparing for Your First Visit
I will email you some paperwork to fill out ahead of time. You can request records or labs from a previous provider before your first visit if you want to.
