2020 is the Year of the Midwife! We started the New Year by going to the Vermont State House and talking with our Representative about the importance of midwives, both in Vermont and around the world. At the end of the morning, we were recognized on the House floor for the important role we play in the healthcare of Vermont. We will continue meeting with our elected officials throughout the year, working to pass important legislation such as expanding birth options to include freestanding birth centers in Vermont and Medicaid coverage for doula care.
/Sometimes things don't go as you planned. This family had to spend some time in the NICU (neonatal intensive care unit) after delivering their baby early. When your pregnancy takes an unexpected course, we are still there for you. This includes labor support in the hospital, breastfeeding/chestfeeding and emotional support, and home visits tailored to your unique postpartum recovery. This couple is very happy to finally be heading home with their little one!
