Midwifery Care NYC offers individualized prenatal services, home births, and postnatal care in the home for families of all backgrounds. In addition to home births, we provide primary health care services from adolescence through adulthood, and through menopause. Our scope of practice encompasses primary and gynecological care, family planning, pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period. We provide care of healthy newborns during the first week of life, and perform diagnoses and treatments of male and female partners for sexually transmitted infections.
Our holistic midwifery care model offers unique, comprehensive, and ongoing assessment, diagnosis, and treatment. MCNYC conducts physical examinations and prescribes medications, including controlled substances and contraception. We order and interpret laboratory and diagnostic tests and order medical devices. MCNYC also offers health promotion, disease prevention, and individualized wellness education and counseling.
Before meeting with prospective clients, we typically have a brief phone conversation to answer basic questions. If it seems there is a good fit, we then schedule a consultation. That consultation is preferably in person, but we can talk via Skype or FaceTime at the family’s request or when an in-person meeting is not possible.
