Housecalls are lovely, and when you’re pregnant, it can be such a relief to know that your midwife will come to you for your prenatal visits. No need to get dressed in “leaving the house” clothes, and no gathering up kids, packing up all the stuff, or fighting the clock. You can just relax and enjoy a friendly, no-judgement-about-the-stains-on-the-couch talk, with your super supportive midwife.
But even though your prenatal home visits definitely don’t count as “company,” sometimes you really don’t want ANYONE coming over, am I right? And sometimes you are on your way home from work or errands, and it’s just easier to stop by your midwife’s office while you are out.
I’ve been setting up a little space for you so that you can have options for where you receive care. Swing by my office and I’ll put the tea kettle on!
Or if you’d rather, stay home in pajamas and I’ll come see you. I have three messy boys of my own, so if you have clutter, sticky counters, or dust bunnies, I truly won’t even notice. Midwifery care is all about having choices. So, my place, or yours?
