about the midwives cooperative
FREE PRECONCEPTION COUNSELING
It is important to explore your options for maternity care, as well as nourish and prepare your body for pregnancy. We offer free information sessions for couples or families who are planning to become pregnant.
FREE ‘MEET THE MIDWIVES’ CONSULTATION
We offer free consultations and an opportunity to meet with all the Midwives in the Cooperative. Questions are welcome (bring a list!), and so are family members. You will have plenty of time to gather information and discuss any concerns in a relaxed, comfortable and private setting. After your consultation, you choose the “birth team” (usually one Midwife as primary care-giver and a second as her assistant) that best suits your family.
We serve the North Central Florida area - including Gainesville, Lake City, Ocala, Dunnellon, Williston....and several places we had never even heard of before becoming Midwives! As long as your place is within thirty minutes of a hospital with maternity services, we travel.
Your Midwife is available to you 24 hours a day - when calling you will reach your Midwife directly. Appointment times are flexible, with evening and weekend hours available.
COST EFFECTIVE CARE
Midwifery is a cost-effective care option. We accept Insurance and Medicaid, and will make individual payment plans as needed.
