We're so glad you're here
Christy will only be accepting homebirth clients through August of 2018.
After over 16 years of midwifery practice and 20 years of attending births as a doula, student or midwife, Christy, will be taking a break from offering homebirth services starting in the fall of 2018, except for a limited number of repeat clients. This is not a retirement, but a pause to focus on family, to pursue additional continuing education that hasn’t been possible while running a busy practice, to increase her support to efforts for reproductive and racial justice in Philadelphia, and to rest, renew and replenish herself!
During this time, we are excited to announce that Motherland Midwifery is expanding our services to include several packages of holistic family-centered prenatal and/or postpartum care for pregnant families planning to give birth in area hospitals and birth centers as an adjunct to the care they receive from their primary provider. See the services page for more information!
*NOTE: Motherland Midwifery has a new office! After 13 years of a home office, Christy is now seeing clients out of a beautiful, cozy space at 1214 Moore Street, right off East Passyunk Avenue!
We provide traditional holistic care for families during the childbearing year.
Holistic Prenatal Care
Adjunct support for pregnant families.
Although, starting in the fall of 2018, Christy will no longer be attending births as a midwife, she will be providing adjunct prenatal care for pregnant women who already have an OB/GYN or midwife as their primary provider but desire holistic guidance on optimizing their health during pregnancy.
The Fourth Trimester Program - NEW!
Helping parents and babies thrive during the first year.
Each visit includes an assessment of your diet, sleep, energy, emotional status, and any concerns about you or your baby’s health. Babies will be weighed at every visit so we can watch them grow over the first year.
