In addition to pregnancy services, we also offer Well Woman care to non-pregnant women of all ages. This includes an hour-long visit to cover an in-depth review of your complete history (medical, gynecological, sexual, & family), a physical exam including breast exam and pap smear, blood work, and referrals as needed. This comprehensive visit is personalized and held in the comfortable environment of the Santa Barbara Birth Center.
If you are planning to conceive we are happy to see you and go over helpful information towards preparing you & your body for a healthy pregnancy and what you can expect in the first few weeks of pregnancy. This includes but is not limited to a holistic view of diet, genetic testing, fertility & cycle awareness.
If you are pregnant and undecided about where you want to give birth, or even if you have chosen to give birth elsewhere, we are here to help you understand the changes occurring in your body during the first trimester. Oftentimes newly pregnant women are not able to get into see a practitioner before 10-12 weeks. If you feel the need for support, counseling, and education, please schedule an Early Pregnancy appointment with one of the midwives. Our commitment is to taking the mystery & fear out of pregnancy for all women in our community.
