The midwives are dedicated to educating your family throughout your prenatal care. They will learn about labor support and techniques that will make them powerful allies as you work to deliver your baby. They also believe that babies should be welcomed with a loving and gentle beginning. So they want to build a close and trusting relationship with you and your family to foster happiness and ease through a time of significant change. Finally, they want to help moms like you build trust in your mind and body’s abilities as you navigate through these transforming periods.
There are several different services at Mandala Midwifery, including complete midwifery care. With midwifery, you can receive prenatal care, a home birth, water birth, and postpartum and newborn care. One of the midwives will be with you throughout your entire pregnancy, during your labor and birth, and after your sweet new baby arrives. All visits take place in the comfort of your own home. Most moms have about 15 visits before labor and delivery if they want a home birth. The midwives will stay with you throughout your entire delivery and up for a few hours after the birth.
You will also receive several postpartum visits up to 6 weeks after your delivery. Mandala Midwifery offers lactation consultants that can support you during your breastfeeding journey.

Mandala Midwifery offers placenta encapsulation for a fee of $200 to help your postpartum recovery go a little smoother. They also offer classes throughout the year, such as breastfeeding and lactation classes, to learn about midwifery services.
