Philosophy and Comments        

Pregnancy and birth are special events that belong to the pregnant woman and her family. Pregnancy and birth are normal, healthy events that enrich relationships and allow families to grow together. Through education and communication, the pregnant woman will participate in the decision making of her care. It is our goal to provide individualized care and education while staying attuned to the concerns and needs of the woman. We also provide gynecological care to women from adolescence through menopause.

Theodorah DeFrancesco, CNM        

Theodorah DeFrancesco, CNM “In an atmosphere of safety and trust, women experience the freedom of discovering birth as a process, not about control, but about letting go.”
