Shayna offers prenatal, labor and postpartum care.  During prenatal visits you will discuss how you are feeling, plans for your birth, any questions you might have as well as the clinical aspect of the care.  Taking blood pressure, urinarlysis, checking the uterus, listening to the baby's heart rate are all routine parts of each visit.  Prenatal visits usually last one hour to provide a relaxed atmosphere  to insure questions are answered and the desires for your birth can be discussed.  You will play an active role in decision making during your pregnancy and birth, we will be making decisions together and working with each other.
