Birth is important. Emerging from your birth feeling capable and confident puts you in the ideal position to meet the challenges of motherhood.
The Midwives of New Jersey believe birth should be empowering whether in the hospital or at home. We are a client-focused practice. Your office appointments allow enough time beyond routine prenatal care for questions to be answered and time for socializing. We are with you throughout your labor and birth. We assist with the first breastfeeding and check in with you postpartum with phone calls and/or homevisits. Pregnancy and birth is life-changing, make it amazing with the Midwives of New Jersey!
