and thank you for visiting Earthbound Midwifery, located in Oakland County Michigan. We serve a range of locations all over Metro Detroit including 248, 734, 810, 586 and 313.
Having a good birth is like baking a cake. You need all the ingredients if it’s going to work. First you start out with some good nutrition. Add a dash of family support. Next, throw in a bit of education and determination. Then, invite a couple of experienced and loving midwives!
If you are a healthy mom who is low risk, there is no reason why you can’t have your baby in the comfort of your own home. We are traditional midwives who believe birth is a natural event. Pregnancy is neither a ‘condition’ nor do we treat it like a disease that needs to be cured. We are women serving women, just like it has been for thousands of years. Our moms believe in themselves and trust their bodies.
Earthbound midwives are low tech. We use our hands and hearts when caring for our clients. We are non-invasive and treat our moms with dignity. We are respectful of your birthing choices. We understand that for some moms, having a baby is as private as making a baby. Being low tech does not mean low safety. Our midwives are certified in Neonatal Resuscitation and CPR. We are trained in the art of normal birth yet we recognize when something is out of the scope of normal and will transport you to a hospital if it becomes necessary.
