Why Choose Shanna Hinrichs Midwifery Care?
My philosophy of midwifery care is rooted in knowing that your pregnancy, birth, and postpartum are normal life events. I work to form a trusting relationship with you while you are an active participant in your care and find empowerment through your experience. I am able to blend the ancient wisdom of the oldest profession with new evidence and technology of modern medicine. I tailor your experience to support the natural physiologic childbirth process – one driven by your's and your baby's innate human capacity while protecting your safety. Because of these beliefs, I am an advocate for Vaginal Birth after Cesarean (VBAC).
I believe in providing a safe space for you and your family to become empowered through individualized care and an authentic relationship. As your midwife, I strive to support you while you decide the best options for you, your family, and your pregnancy. I provide full prenatal, birth, and postpartum care, including standard labs. I offer homebirth and birth center birth to you and support you in the place of your choosing. I am different in how I practice in the number of times you will see me during your postpartum period. I believe that the "4th trimester" is a forgotten time in American culture.
I consider it an honor to serve growing families through the incredible journey of the childbearing year.
