The Midwifery Model of Care
Statistically, women who are found to be in good health & low risk,
labor and birth better at home.
The Midwifery Model of Care is based upon the fact that pregnancy, labor, and birth are normal life occurrences.
The Midwifery Model of Care includes:
The monitoring of the physical, emotional, psychological, and social well being of the expectant mother throughout the childbearing cycle/process.
Providing the expectant parent(s) with individualized education, counseling, and prenatal care, continuous assistance during labor, delivery, and postpartum support.
The minimization for the need of technological interventions.
Identifying and referring out those women who are in need of the care of an obstetrician.
A glimpse into the office of HBSSNV
At Homebirth Services of Southern Nevada, we strive to offer a cozy & comfortable atmosphere. We are the antithesis of a medical office. We are located in a tiny bungalow style cottage in historic Downtown Las Vegas. Our office is more of a home environment. All appointments are conducted here.
We do work with a multitude of professionals here in the Valley, so we are able to refer clients out to the proper providers as needed.
If you are interested in booking a complimentary consultation, please fill out the form on the Contact page, or you can click here.
At Homebirth Services of Southern Nevada we pride ourselves on putting our clients, and their baby's well being first. This means that there are always two skilled attendants at your birth.
The midwife I work with predominantly is Cassie Franco, CPM, LM. Both of us are trained in neonatal resuscitation, Birth Emergency Skills and CPR & BLS. In the event that Cassie is attending another birth and she is unavailable, I have several trained assistants who will accompany me. Meeting Cassie, or the assistant who will be attending your birth is always encouraged, and this meeting is usually towards the end of the pregnancy.
I currently have one Student Midwife, Jennifer Pennington. Jennifer attends most of my prenatal and postpartum visits with my clients, as well as their births. Jennifer is a doula, Placenta Encapasulator and Birth Tub Technician. Should you wish to engage Jennifer for any of her services please click here to email her directly.
