"Midwife" means "with woman" so your prenatal and well-woman care should be tailored specifically to each individual. This model of care includes fewer unnecessary medical interventions for low-risk women. Which Elementz of care are most important to you? We will provide options to help you make informed choices about your evidence-based healthcare. We trust that you know the normals for your body and you should have a voice. The combination of support and comfort from your team is beneficial in facilitating a smooth transition for your entire pregnancy & birthing experience. Being supported and cared for holistically during this important time in your life, is our main goal.
We will have regular, scheduled prenatal visits like most clinics. Your scheduling options will be flexible and based on your schedule. Your visits are comfortable and relaxed without added constraints & pressures. You should leave each appointment having all your questions answered and feeling truly empowered to make optimal decisions. Whom ever you choose to have at your appointment is always welcome. Have other kiddos: bring them or we will come to you! We can arrange what works best for your situation & I dont mind traveling.
We will be in close contact before, during, and after your labor. We will travel to you with all needed birthing supplies and arrive as planned, based on your personal preferences. You will know your labor team is completely focused solely on you and your family. During labor, you will experience the freedom to move around as needed, eat what you'd like when you'd like, relax in whatever way feels good for your body, and enjoy the comforts of your own home. The Midwife model of care reserves unnecessary interventions and promotes the physiologic birth processes but is always prepared. Your midwife takes extra classes and keeps up to date with the latest methods of evidence based care.
It is important you receive the best possible care before as well as, after giving birth so our team will stay to provide support, conduct physical exams, assist with breastfeeding, closely monitor for any potential complications, and answer any questions you have.

Our goal is to stay connected with you for healthy development while making things easier to understand and safer, evidence-based care. After the birth of your sweet baby, we will clean up & no one would ever know you labored and delivered there.
To ensure that you receive the best possible care for your precious newborn baby, our team will stay in close contact with you after your birth to conduct physical exams, assist with breastfeeding, and provide one-on-one care. Each of these services can be provided to you in the comfort of your home. Our goal is to stay connected with you for healthy development while making things less stressful in alignment with your choices and values. We provide everything for top-notch care of your little one. We remain skilled, competent, and licensed in resuscitative interventions to care for any emergency if one ever arose.
Hi! I am Chrissy, an APRN and Certified Nurse Midwife with independent licensure to practice in Kansas & Colorado. I have experience as an RN or registered nurse, for 15 years and have had many experiences and oppertunities which help shape how I provide holistic care. Being a nurse in several different settings while holding acute care hospital nursing experience of over 10 years, home birth is truly my passion and I cannot imagine doing anything else! My wish & goals are to bring more options to women around Northwest Kansas and Eastern Colorado while helping promote teaching about all the options that exist; even in rural areas. I not only want your pregnancy and birth experience to be memorable, (this is a monumental life event) and you should never feel alone, disrespected, or unsupported. I have personal hospital experiences creating a beautiful family but I never knew there could be anything different. I did not understand that I had options and could ask questions or refuse. As your Midwife, I look forward to empowering you and cannot wait to hear how we can help your family grow and thrive. I intentionally, commit to a low-volume of clients so my time and energy can be devoted to your care. Message me today for a free consultation!
Your chosen birth team will include a trained birth attendant who is supportive & a second pair of helpful hands. She will assist your Midwife, help clean up supplies, and record birth times.
Your Midwife will always have another Midwife backup as well as having a personal consult for any situation. Dr. Chun is an impressive provider with over 25 years of practice as an established OBGYN.
Visitors or guests: your labor can include as many or as few support persons as YOU choose.
We have several great recommendations for birth or postpartum doulas, photographers, chiropractic options, and specialists around the area. We team closely with your doula if you choose to have one or we can discuss several other support options available. This experience should truly be yours.
