Welcome to Home Sweet Home!
We are so glad that you are here!
Home Sweet Home is a small, intimate home birth practice that will serve women and families. Midwifery care will be provided for women in the Des Moines metro and surrounding areas.
While I know there are a few home birth options in Des Moines, there are quite a few things that set Home Sweet Home apart from the others. I am the only Certified Nurse Midwife (CNM) with a Christian based home birth practice. Pregnancy & birth is such a special and important time in a woman’s life and I truly believe that God is present in this journey with families.
Home birth and midwifery care is all about relationship. Clients see me for almost a year usually (all of pregnancy plus the postpartum time) and we really get to know one another. This is something I truly value as being the only midwife in my practice. Your visits will always be 45-90mins in length and there is a lot of education that happens from pregnancy, nutrition, exercise/wellness, newborn education, postpartum education, vaccinations (whether you want to do none, some, or all), breastfeeding, mental health, safety, and so much more!
I also only take on a few clients each month for births. This is to ensure all moms have my full attention & that births will not overlap. I value my clients and their families greatly and truly believe in giving them my full support!
I look forward to meeting your family & watching you grow during this amazing time in life.
Please fill out the form to get in contact with us. We will do our best to get back to you within 24-48 hours. However, we may be busy welcoming new life. We look forward to speaking with you!
