Prenatal Services

Every pregnancy is different
 

Magnolia’s Prenatal Services

We recognize and understand that all pregnancies are different, so we approach each pregnancy journey individually. The traditional elements of pregnancy care will remain the same with enhanced education and personalized attention given at each visit. Prenatal care visits are scheduled in longer sessions than traditional medical offices, so that we have ample time to address all questions and concerns at each visit. We welcome family members, significant others, siblings, grandparents, and doulas to attend prenatal visits and to participate in the pregnancy journey to birth.
“We have a secret in our culture. It’s not that birth is painful. It’s that women are strong.”

– Laura Stavoe Harm
