Prenatal Care


Regular prenatal care is important for the health of the birthing person and the baby. We believe that receiving prenatal care in a spiritual, community-centered context, benefits the birthing team and the world. We offer sacred birth circles and community events at several metro area locations or virtually throughout the month.
 

We consider these part of pre- and postnatal care. In addition, each of your prenatal visits will have time for movement, meditation, teachings about pregnancy, birth, or parenting, conversation, expression, and/or parent blessings. Each prenatal is sacred. We encourage you to explore different techniques to connect to your divine body and your divine baby. 

We ask that you schedule a prenatal visit at least:

  • Once each month through 28 weeks,
  • Every two weeks from 28-36 weeks,
  • Every week after 36 weeks until birth.
PRENATAL VISITS SCHEDULED ARE HELD AT GENEVA’S HOME OFFICE IN ENGLEWOOD (HAMPDEN & SANTA FE) OR AT SENA'S HOME OFFICE (ALAMEDA & WADSWORTH)

Healing Sessions: You will have the opportunity to schedule one on one sessions with your midwife if you book the Goddess Package. Time to connect, to know one another on a soul level. These sessions will be designed by you- you can choose spirit medicine, birth art, bodywork, energy work, henna, education... whatever feels right to you. These sessions are held at Geneva’s home office.

During our one-on-one times, we will also:

➤ Discuss matters of importance, concern, or interest;

➤ Review your family and medical history;

➤ Assess for risk factors for homebirth;

➤ Check vitals: weight, blood pressure, urinalysis, temp, and pulse as indicated;

➤ Evaluate your nutrition, making recommendations where necessary;

➤ Assess fetal growth activity and determine fetal position

➤ Measure fundal height;

➤ Listen to the fetal heart beat;

➤ Perform individualized laboratory tests as indicated

➤ Pap smear or other vaginal cultures (Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, GBS), as indicated;

➤ Laboratory testing of antibodies, CBC, Genetic Screenings, Quad Screens, and a Glucose Tolerance Test will be offered.

"If you want to have a magical sacred supportive pregnancy home birth midwife near me and postpartum, hire Geneva. She is an outstanding home birth midwife in Denver and a beautiful spirit inside and out. She has a mastery of skills and experience that would be hard to find anywhere else. We are beyond grateful to have found her and her team. Our home birth service in Denver was probably the best experience of our lives!"

Labor and Birth


Birth is inherently sacred! We hold space for you to make this to look however you want it to look. Throughout your pregnancy we will give you resources to create the birth you want to have. Ultimately we have no control over how your birth goes… but we can create a sacred space and honor all members of this experience no matter what happens.
 

We will discuss your plans and what your midwives’ roles are at your 36 week visit and do all we can to ensure you have positive memories of your birth.

"Geneva's care throughout my pregnancy and birth was unlike anyone else’s. Not only was she thorough on the medical side, but she was everything I needed emotionally. During birth she knew when I truly needed her care and when I just needed her to hold space for me. I'll never forget the role she played during the most amazing experience of my life."

Pospartum Care


The first few hours, days, weeks postpartum are an integral piece of your overall experience and we strive to make them sacred as well. In all cultures throughout history this time was honored. It is a necessary time of healing, bonding, and new beginnings. We will discuss ways to honor the birthing person and the baby and you will pick how you want this to look. It is required in our practice that sacred space is held in your home for at least a week. We visit you at home 24-36 hours after the birth, again after your milk has come in around 3-4 days and again at 7-10 days. Throughout the postpartum period we remain in phone contact with you and will have additional appointments with you at your home as needed. We offer a 3-4 week in home check up if desired and at 6 weeks postpartum a complete well woman exam and pap smear (if needed) and your final private healing session. We encourage you to continue attending support circles after the birth with your baby as long as you like. Community and ceremony are an important part of parenting and growing families.

We offer all mandatory newborn screenings and file a birth certificate with the state of Colorado.

"Geneva was our homebirth midwife in Denver for our first birth. We had a wonderful water birth at home and everything turned out perfect, thanks to the incredible care Geneva and the birth team provided. Geneva specifically was wonderful and supportive all around - emotionally, and spiritually and she has extensive midwifery and healthcare expertise. She provided vital information from when I was about 26 weeks into my pregnancy all the way through labor and delivery until postpartum. She’s knowledgeable, compassionate, calm under pressure, helped us make informed decisions, and has a good sense of humor. I would definitely recommend Geneva to families."

Water Birth and VBAC are Great Options!

VBAC

A SAFE CHOICE FOR MOST WOMEN

Most people who have had a cesarean birth are great candidates for home birth or natural vaginal birth in the hospital. People who have had multiple cesarean births but have also had a vaginal birth are also candidates. ACOG agrees that vaginal births are safer even after a previous cesarean birth. We are experienced in supporting people through a trial of labor after cesarean and we believe that a focus on the sacred is the perfect way to let a new pregnancy be a part of your healing process. We would love to talk to you about the possibility of homebirth or doula/monitrice services in the hospital. We also support women who choose repeat cesarean or find cesarean becomes a necessary option. Sacred care is available for all pregnant people.

Water Birth

WATER IS LIFE

Water has the ability to protect, soothe, and remove negative energy. It is a tool that benefits many women both physically and spiritually during labor and birth. We are very experienced with monitoring baby, checking dilation, and catching babies in the water.  Babies born in the water experience a more gentle entrance, they remain between two worlds a moment longer. We bring them up to breathe immediately. You can purchase your own birth pool or use one of ours.

We work on a sliding scale for one client per month, offering the Sacred Birth Package at a discounted rate.

It is an integral part of our philosophy that this type of care is accessible to all people. 

We ask that if you can pay more, that you do. This allows us to care for people who cannot pay as much. Please discuss with us what your needs and situation are. If you are committed to having sacred care, we are committed to helping you get it.  If you are in a situation of hardship, please let us know what you think you can pay. We accept payment plans, trade or barter arrangements for a portion of the fee as well. A non-refundable deposit of 15% of the total fee is appreciated at the first visit.
