What sort of postpartum support does your midwife offer? Are all visits done in your home? Does she do the primary care for the baby as well?

she comes a couple times in the first week, again at 2 weeks and then the 6 week is at her office/home. But she's available by phone also and can come to my house if I need..

She comes withing 48 hours after birth then again around 3 weeks and the final post pardom visit at 6 weeks is at her office. She will do basic newborn check-ups during that time. She recommends a visit with the peditrician around 4 weeks PP, unless there is any issues with the baby.

She does 2 at home and then 2 at her house. You can use her for well women visits, but I don't because she is over an hour away.

My midwives come on day 1, day 5, day 7 and day 14 to the house. After that we go to the office at week 4 and week 6. They are available by phone/text/email anytime in between.

I know I have a check up at 1, 2, 4, and 6 weeks....I think if we are close enough she comes the day after to check and if not she calls and checks up on us.

We aren't to give a baby milk, berries, or peanut butter. We are to introduce new foods one at a time. But it's OK to inject several viruses, bacteria, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, animal serum, mercury, squalene and more into an 8 week old? I don't think so.
In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.
Our choice to not vax isn't based in ignorance, poverty, conspiracy theory and rumor. It's research, common sense, fact and evidence based..something the medical community has largely forgot about.
