Yvonne Silbernagel, LMCPM, MBC, is passionate about support, informed choices, and communication. As your midwife, she encourages your active participation in your and your baby’s care during your prenatal, labor and delivery, and postpartum stages. She aims to empower you with information so you can make informed choices and confidently create goals and your birthing plan.
Your prenatal visits will follow routine scheduling and be an opportunity to get to know one another while monitoring your and your baby’s health. You will also get to know her assistants of highly trained doulas with specific training to work as a midwife’s assistant.
When it’s time for your home birth, there is no set plan, as each delivery is unique and takes its own path. After your baby arrives, she will schedule periodic postpartum visits to ensure you and the baby are thriving. For more information about her and her assistants, check out their website.

Charlee Lacy, MSN, CNM, has been serving home-birthing families for over 20 years and cherishes each birth like it’s the first. She believes every woman should feel like an expert in caring for their body, especially during pregnancy, labor, and delivery.

When your baby arrives and you are both stable, they will set up routine postpartum care to ensure you are both thriving. You can connect with her online to begin your pregnancy and labor support today.
