Prenatal Care

Prenatal Care will include office visits with Amanda to monitor the health and well being of you and your baby. At these appointments, we will discuss your options during pregnancy, perform any necessary or desired screenings, draw labs and evaluate results, check your vitals, listen to the baby's heart tones, measure your  growing belly, and answer any questions you may have. You will be seen in the office every 3 weeks during the first two trimesters, then every 2 weeks from 28 weeks until 36, and then we will see you weekly until the baby arrives. Your 36 week visit will be a prenatal appointment in your home.

Labor and Delivery

Midwifery Services with Amanda also includes support and care during your birth. When you are in labor, Amanda and her Assistant(s) will come to your home and monitor you and the baby while you are laboring, they will help catch the baby, and then they will care for both mom and baby until they are both stable after delivery. When the new family has had plenty of time to bond and breastfeed, Amanda will provide a thorough newborn exam, then the team help the new mom take a shower if she'd like, clean up the birth space, and feed the family and help them settle in bed so that everyone can rest.

Postpartum Care

Mothers who birth with Hattiesburg Midwifery can expect to be seen after delivery in the comfort of their own homes at around Day 2 and again around Day 5 to check on mom and baby. Then Amanda will see both mom and baby in the office at around 2 weeks, 4 weeks, and 6 weeks postpartum, with more visits when necessary. During our postpartum visits we will be monitoring vitals on mom and baby, we will provide breastfeeding assistance if needed, perform any necessary screening or lab work, and help the new family transition to life with a newborn.
