What is a Virtual Midwife?

The average pregnant person spends 15 minutes with their obstetrician or midwife during prenatal visits. That is not enough time to ask questions, get answers, and provide pregnant people with the comprehensive care that is essential to their well being. Pregnant people deserve the time and space to discuss their symptoms, discover natural remedies, and receive professional guidance around nutrition, exercise, and sleep.

Due to the lack of comprehensive care in our medical system, many women are turning to Google Search for answers. This process of scouring the internet can leave pregnant people feeling uncertain and more confused than before. Trust me, I’ve been there.

This is where a virtual midwife steps in. Virtual midwifery provides a unique opportunity to receive professional support from the comfort of your own home. Each 60 minute video call is catered to you and your individual needs. This is your chance to have all of your pregnancy and postpartum questions answered. Virtual midwifery also fills the gap where our medical system is lacking in providing emotional support for pregnant and postpartum mothers.

This type of care creates the space for you to honor your intuition, discover evidence-based practices, and make informed choices for you and your family. This model of care provides all pregnant people with access to midwives regardless of where you live or your financial circumstances.

Whether this is your first child or your fourth, virtual midwifery can provide you with the guidance and support that you need.

Virtual Midwifery can support you to:

  • Create space for the emotional aspects of pregnancy and motherhood.

  • Prepare your mind and body for a positive birth and postpartum.

  • Navigate the ongoing changes in your relationships.

  • Feel more confident in your birthing and parenting abilities.

  • Release fears surrounding birth and new motherhood.

  • Create a postpartum plan that supports your entire family system.

In today’s world, the services offered by a midwife are more vital than ever. A midwife can support you on your path of motherhood even if connecting in-person isn’t a viable option. During these unprecedented times many mothers are taking extra precautions to socially distance and prevent unnecessary exposure. This often means forgoing traditional services in favor of virtual ones.

Connecting with a midwife is easier than ever before.

You deserve to be supported every step of the way.

 Please note that virtual midwifery support is not a substitute for medical care.
