Care for You and Baby

Pregnancy Health

Prenatal visits are encouraged to support best care of you and your baby. We will take the time together to address your physical and emotional needs to ensure that your prenatal experience is one that you'll enjoy. Services during your visits may include urine assessments, blood pressure, blood sugar monitoring, exercise and nutritional counseling, as well as assessment of your baby's growth, development, and  heart beat. You are also encouraged to attend AMANI Birth Islamic preparation classes with your husband.

Labor and Birth

During labor you will be personally attended by Licensed Home Birth Midwife, Aisha Al Hajjar, and at least one assistant in order to observe you and your baby during normal labor. At your home you will experience the freedom to move around as needed, eat what you'd like when you'd like, and relax in whatever way feels good for your body. The combination of support and comfort from your family and our team, is beneficial in facilitating your birth.

Postpartum and Newborn Care

To ensure that you receive the best possible care for you and your newborn baby, we will stay in close contact after your birth to provide support, physical exams, assist with breastfeeding, and answer any questions you may have. All of these services will be provided to you in the comfort of your home. The goal is to stay connected with you for a healthy development.
