The third trimester of your pregnancy is a good time to schedule your Prenatal Home Visit. Weekend appointments are often available to fit your schedule. Please complete the Prenatal Intake Form and Standard Consent Form at least 48 hrs before our visit, so I can review your health history and any other relevant details in advance.

You may also wish to consider making your prenatal visit part of a Full Spectrum Support Package.
