Our goal is to create a safe and supportive environment in which normal pregnancy and birth can occur. We do this by creating a strong relationship with the family during the prenatal time and by holding space in whatever way the mother needs during her labor.
A fundamental practice principle of Harvest Moon Women's Health is to be a source of information and support to our clientele. We aim to establish a personal, mutually comfortable working relationship with all of our clients. To help make that possible, we interview all potential new clients, at no cost, before accepting them. We want to make sure you feel comfortable working with us and that we are able to provide what you expect in a health care provider.
We take a limited number of clients for delivery each month to ensure that we will be available when necessary. There are no other physicians "on call". There is no answering service. When you're in labor you know exactly who will be there. When you call, whether during office hours or in the middle of the night, you always know the provider with whom you are speaking.
We strive to provide our clients with accurate, unbiased information. To remain current, we read and evaluate original research and separate fact from opinion. For each client, we explain risks, benefits of, and controversies surrounding currently offered routine medical interventions so the client can make truly informed choices.
We welcome questions from anyone. We are happy to provide second opinions and consultations as needed for non-clients without the normal interview process.
