Free Initial Consult

Little Blessings Birth Services offers a free initial consult for families to meet our midwives and learn more about the services we provide. Making the choice to receive midwifery care and have a home birth can be a very rewarding choice, but it must be made with the full understanding of the risks and benefits. The initial consult is a great time to ask questions and decide if midwifery care is right for you. During the consultation, we typically cover:

  • General health history questions
  • Risks of childbirth and home birth to the mother and infant
  • Management of complications in an out-of-hospital setting
  • How labor and birth differ in a hospital birth
  • Your reasons for choosing out-of-hospital birth and midwifery care
  • Arrangements for backup medical consultation and/or transport
