Growing a tiny human may be a little scary if it’s your first time. It may even be a little scary if it’s your fifth, or sixth, or seventh. The professionals at Serenity Birth Center guide you through prenatal care to equip you to confidently carry and deliver your baby.
Typically, you’ll see your midwifery team every four weeks during weeks 4 to 28. From weeks 28 to 36, you’ll see them every two weeks and after 36 weeks until baby is born, you’ll be scheduled weekly. Same day appointments are always available if you sense a problem.
During your appointment, you’ll have plenty of time to ask whatever questions you have. We don’t rush our clients through visits and we want to alleviate any fears or concerns you have. We’ll show you how to optimize your food and lifestyle choices to benefit you and your baby. Any lab work that needs to be done is conveniently located at Serenity Birth Center.
