  • Having what you want for yourself and your baby will be respected

  • Building a relationship with your midwife

  • Not feeling rushed or unimportant

  • Offering time to answering all your questions

Our Mission

Giving birth is a pivotal life process that offers you and your family the opportunity for great joy, personal growth and change. Such an important journey deserves the personal care, attention and company of a midwife.

At Sacred Transitions our mission is to provide every family the unique opportunity to partner with our midwives for achieving their desired birth experience. Our midwives provide you with the highest-quality of personal, individualized care, that allows you to give birth in a way that reflects your values, choices and desires for yourself, your baby and your family.

Our Beliefs

The care you experience with our midwives during your pregnancy, labor and birth is

designed to reflect a set of core beliefs about the nature of birth and why your birth

experience matters. As midwives, we have witnessed over and over again that if

pregnancy and birth are supported and allowed to unfold as nature intended - without

pressure or interference - birth can be a safe, joyous, and empowering experience.

This knowledge, gained over many decades of caring for women and families like

yours, deeply informs our philosophy of care, how our facility is designed, and the

services we offer to you.

At Sacred Transitions we offer you and your family care, support and information during

your pregnancy and birth that will deepen your belief in the personal power you possess to give birth and to parent your child. Giving birth is a right of passage that offers you and your family the opportunity for great joy and personal growth. We invite you to take your journey with us, and experience personalized care, attention, and connection.

Your Care

The Midwives Model of Care includes:

  • Monitoring the physical, psychological, and social well-being of the mother throughout the childbearing cycle

  • Providing the mother with individualized education, counseling, and prenatal care, continuous hands-on assistance during labor and delivery, and postpartum support

  • Minimizing technological interventions

  • Identifying and referring women who require obstetrical attention

  • The application of this woman-centered model of care has been proven to reduce the incidence of birth injury, trauma, and cesarean section. *

We are here to provide continuity of care throughout your pregnancy and postpartum. We will support you in meaningful ways through education, communication, time spent together, and a personalized plan. If you require outside support we will be in contact with your other providers, to ensure your care is managed mindfully.
