All prenatal care is provided by our highly qualified midwives within our birth center. You will have regularly scheduled appointments throughout your pregnancy, with ample time for questions and to address all of your concerns with the midwife. Our comprehensive holistic-based care has an emphasis on diet, nutrition and exercise for a preventative approach to your health and well-being. In addition to any necessary labwork, you have a basic exam at each appointment to assess you and your baby's health.
Our birth services offer you an alternative option to birthing in the hospital. Our midwives will be available to you throughout your labor and delivery. We encourage hydrotherapy (submersion into water during labor), and are specialists in waterbirth. We allow eating and drinking during labor, will have you wear your own clothing during labor, and you may bring your close family and friends to participate if you like. Our policy is one of non-intervention, unless intervention is necessary and jointly decided between parents and the midwife. It is the primary goal of our midwives to support and guide you through your labor, and give you and your family the control you deserve during this momentous occasion.
We have an extensive postpartum follow-up program at the birth center. After your 4-12 hour stay after delivery you will have two home visits with our staff nurse within the first week. Our nurse and the midwife will provide you with the information and support needed for a quick recovery and successful breastfeeding. We will also provide you with a referral to a lactation consultant or other services if needed. You will then have a two-week and an eight-week office visit with the midwife for final postpartum evaluation.
The Family Birth Center of Naples also offers various other services as mentioned above. If you are interested in any other services, please call for more information or to schedule an appointment.
