Prenatal Care

Birth Center of Jacksonville includes prenatal visits with “hands-on” care. This care results in a healthier pregnancy and birth for you and your baby. You can expect 30-60 minute long appointments each month until your 28th week of pregnancy. You will then visit with your midwives every two weeks until you are 36 weeks, and then you will visit with us weekly until your sweet baby arrives.

Your midwives will provide:

Personal Attention

  • Prenatal visits that allow plenty of time for questions and answers.
  • Meaningful discussions to explore and help resolve fears and concerns you or your family may have.
  • Caring attention to develop a trusting and nurturing relationship with you and your family that can help you to labor and give birth naturally and safely.

Lots of Information

  • Plenty of information about pregnancy, birth and the newborn, and about breastfeeding and newborn care.
  • Suggestions about ways you can take good care of yourself and your baby.
  • Encouragement and practical suggestions for you to have good nutrition and make healthy lifestyle choices.
  • Full information about any recommended tests, procedures or treatments so you can make informed choices about your care.

Appropriate Care

  • Regular and thorough check-ups for you and your baby throughout your pregnancy, during labor, and after the birth, to make sure both of you are healthy and doing well.
  • Recommendations for diagnostic technology when appropriate.
  • Planning with you for the unexpected and for the rare emergency.
  • Referrals to other health care specialists or to a different birth setting if needed.
  • Expertise in normal, natural childbirth. Being experts in normal pregnancy and birth, midwives are experienced in the variations of normal birth and recognize the early signs of conditions that are not “normal,” including medical conditions or complications that may occasionally arise during pregnancy or the birth process.
