GraceFull Classic Care
Prenatal Classic Care
This care is what you will find at most free standing birthing centers and home birth practices in the Southern California area. All of your visits are private with one of our midwives in our birthing suites to provide you with a relaxed home-like environment while offering our nationally accredited medical standards of care. You will alternate prenatal care with all of our midwives so you get comfortable with who will be by your side when your day comes. We have flexible appointment times, including evenings and weekends to work around high Los Angeles traffic times and family working schedules. These private meetings allow for you to bring friends and family members to your visits so they can be part of this journey.
If you are birthing at home your 36 week visit will be in your home so a midwife can see where the tub will go and confirm you have everything you need for your birth.
Post Partum Classic Care
After your baby is born a Licensed Midwife will come back to your home within 24-48 hours after the birth to check in not only on you but also your baby. You will then come back to GraceFull for private one on one meetings at 1 week, 3 weeks and 6 weeks. You are also able to come to our free Mama and Baby Gatherings at GraceFull lead by one of our midwives every week from 10:30 - noon to meet other mamas, weight your baby and be part of our community for 6 months after you give birth.
