Personalized healthcare can be a hard thing to find. So often, it feels like we’re just another patient filling a short time slot on a busy day. And while this is always a frustrating situation, when it happens throughout pregnancy, it can be especially maddening. It’s a season where your body is frequently changing, and you need to know what’s normal and what might be cause for concern. Rather than ignoring your concerns, midwives are there to make sure you have individualized healthcare. They take the time to listen to your questions and provide comfort. If you’ve been looking at providers for your pregnancy, I’d love to give you a list of some of the best Orlando midwives who will be there for you at every turn.
If you’ve always dreamed of having a quiet home birth surrounded by those closest to you, then check out April Williams at Natural Design Midwifery. April has been practicing since 2010 and has attended over 400 births. She had her own children from her home and saw firsthand how profound the experience was. Now, she’s here to equip you for the same thing! With April, you’ll receive comprehensive prenatal care on schedule. She’ll make sure you have the resources you need by the time of your due date. If you choose to do a water birth, you can choose to use your own tub or rent a portable, inflatable one from her.
Tree of Life Birth is a birth center in Altamonte Springs that provides extraordinary midwifery care! The center was started by Kaleen Richards, a certified nurse midwife who believes every parent should have the right to labor in their own way! Kaleen is joined by a team of midwives who are passionate about providing individualized care at every point in pregnancy. The midwives exclusively deliver at the Tree of Life Birth Center, where you’ll also receive all your prenatal care. They are big believers in hydrotherapy and will assist with a waterbirth if you choose. They also provide well-woman visits outside of pregnancy.
Michelle Isla, a midwife with nearly ten years of experience, opened Sacred Birth. The midwives at the center believe that birth is a divine experience that should be personalized for each parent. The center is inclusive of every parent and will give you support in your birth choices. They practice slow midwifery, where your appointments are an hour long and full of conversation to make sure you feel confident at every point. The midwives provide care for home births and will assist with your water birth.
Kaitlin Gauna started Moments midwifery. Above all, the appointments with Kaitlin focus on patience and comprehension. So she takes her time to ensure you feel comfortable. You’ll spend each visit getting to understand what’s going on with your body and what to be expecting. Kaitlin’s team includes doulas, sonographers, lactation consultants, and pelvic floor specialists. Moments Midwifery specializes exclusively in home births.
