Services by Morningstar Midwifery, Homebirth, Waterbirth, Well Woman Care, Belfast, Maine



Although homebirth may not be right for you, there is great benefit to receiving midwifery care during your pregnancy. We schedule supplemental prenatal appointments between your regularly scheduled visits with your obstetric provider. These can be as frequent as every month, or only once or twice during a pregnancy. During these visits, we will focus on the issues that are most important to you, which may include nutrition for optimal health of mother and baby, natural remedies for pregnancy complaints, questions about prenatal screenings, and preparation for birth, breastfeeding, and parenting. These visits allow you to have personalized midwifery attention in addition to your primary care.

We also love to do supplemental postpartum care and breastfeeding support. Visits are available at the office and can be focused on newborn care, healing from birth, and the emotional challenges of becoming a new mother. These usually take place within the first six week after birth. We especially love visiting the babies of women we have supported prenatally!
These visits take place in the office during regular hours, and last an hour and a quarter. Flexible fees are offered on a sliding scale.

"I had an OB/GYN I was happy with but I sought supplemental prenatal care with Morningstar Midwifery because I wanted a more wholistic resource during my pregnancy. Morningstar Midwifery thoroughly and thoughtfully answered every question and concern I had. I was impressed with their extensive knowledge based not only on experience but current research as well. They were an invaluable second opinion and provided much peace of mind. I appreciated the respect they had for my personal decisions. While I delivered my first child in a hospital, I would not hesitate in choosing Morningstar Midwifery for delivering my next child. They far exceeded my expectations on so many levels. Thanks Morningstar Midwifery!"
