Birthing at home, safely

Thoughtfully, deliberately, and with the best interests of everyone in mind, we have developed parameters for our services.

  • We only accept women who are low-risk, ensuring that our clients and their babies are in the best hands possible.
  • We only accept women who take ownership of their health by doing their best to make healthy food and lifestyle choices and work as partners with our guidance.
  • At our practice, we only accept clients within a 15-mile radius to ensure that we can respond promptly.
  • We also limit our client intake to 4 homebirths per month, so that we can provide the highest level of attention and care to each of our clients.
  • Because Kim is allergic to cats we cannot take on clients who have house cats.
