Midwifery Care

Sky Valley Midwifery prides itself on forming trusting relationships with its clients as they are key participants in the care they receive during their pregnancy.

Sky Valley Midwifery provides complete prenatal services.

Sky Valley Midwifery provides complete prenatal services, routine blood work, genetic testing, and referrals for diagnostic testing (ultrasound) as necessary.  Visits are scheduled the same way a doctor’s office would provide; the difference is more time available for education, questions, and informed consent prior to procedures.


Seeing a midwife during your pregnancy is a special and unique experience. Each family brings different expectations and desires to their appointments. Midwifery care focuses on the family unit, with education to encourage collaborative care. Midwives provide encouragement and foster trust during the childbearing years, ensuring feelings of empowerment to make informed choices.

After birth, the body goes through a huge transition of recovery and hormone shifting. The focus should be on resting, bonding with your baby, and breastfeeding. Midwifery care is unique in the way we incorporate the needs of mother and baby into routine care. The midwife comes to you! No need to pack up and head to the office. Stay in your bed, in your PJs, and rest. We don't expect to find a clean house or to be waited on. The goal is to do as much skin-to-skin as possible and get to know your new addition!
