What I really love about Midwifery care is that I can take my time with each client. I spend at least 1-2 hours with each client at appointments. I only see two – three clients per day so that I can fully focus and prepare for you.
I offer home visits for prenatal care and we sometimes even do our visits at the beach. Our prenatal and postpartum appointments are designed just for you and your own unique needs. I want you to leave our appointments feeling confident and cared for.
Visits are conducted on Monday’s, Wednesday’s and Friday’s from 9am – 4pm. My off days and times are sacred to my well being as your midwife. Remember, I will leave any and all special occasions regardless of the day or time when your baby decides to come earth side! During these times you can expect to have a direct line of communication with me via secure messaging portal, text and phone. Your phone calls and messages will be returned promptly.
United Medical Credit offers medical loan to help cover partial or full midwifery care costs. This allows you to make payments over a larger range of time. Application and approval time has a quick turn around so that you may start care within days. Click Here to Apply
Some PPO insurances will pay a predetermined percentage for home birth. This is paid in form of a refund to you after approximately 2-3 months from the birth of your baby. Click to learn about how Favored Medical Billing can help you with this process.
Leaving a small carbon footprint is important to me, using electronic health care records is one small way we can collaborate in taking care of our precious earth Mother. All of your records, prenatal visits summary, contracts, agreements, appointments, messaging, and billing is conveniently handled through Client Care Practice virtual portal. When you decide to have me as your midwife I will send you an activation link to get started.
My clients invest in their birth the same way they might in purchasing a home, buying a car or planning a vacation. They understand that time and dedication is needed into preparing on all levels for their birth. They see value and cherish the way that they will welcome their child into this world.
My clients accept a natural birth from rooted place within themselves because they believe in their innate ability to birth. They are open to the many paths that their birth journey can take, and they understand that midwifery care can guide them through this process despite the twist and turns it may take.
My clients always appreciate my unique and caring presence. They appreciate the different therapeutic therapies that I utilize. They say I am wise, encouraging, empowering yet calm.
My clients most enjoy our prenatal visits and all the education that is packed into our sessions.
“Tema is an amazing midwife who counseled me through the loss of my 4th pregnancy. She was able to give me medical, practical, and emotional help through the process of miscarrying my precious babe. I will be forever grateful for her warm and caring heart. She has a true passion for midwifery and for helping women. Thank you, Tema!” ~ Gabriela G.
