Prenatal visits are encouraged during the developmental stages of your baby. Appointments are 45-60 minutes long and I take the time to address your physical and emotional needs to ensure that your pregnancy experience is one that you'll enjoy. Services during your midwife visit can include urine assessments, blood pressure testing, nutritional counseling, and fetal heart measurements. Prenatal appointments should be enjoyable and educational as we anticipate the arrival of your sweet new baby!
I am a midwife offering homebirth services to the Durango and Four Corners area. While laboring and birthing at home you will experience the freedom to move around as needed, eat what you'd like when you'd like, and relax in whatever way feels good for your body. The combination of support and comfort from your family and our team, is beneficial in facilitating your birth.
To ensure that you receive the best possible care for you and your newborn baby, I will stay in close contact with you after your homebirth to provide support, physical exams, assist with breastfeeding, and answer any questions you may have. These services are provided in your home immediately after delivery, and then in my midwife office up to six weeks postpartum. My goal is to stay connected with you to offer the support you need to enjoy your newborn and recover from pregnancy and birth.
Beka Blythe Certified Professional Midwife. 970-749-4497
Welcome! My name is Beka Blythe and I am a Certified Professional Midwife who specializes in prenatal care, natural birth, postpartum well-being, lactation support and childbirth education. It is my desire and priority to honor the natural process of pregnancy and birth by offering personalized and compassionate care throughout your journey. I believe in the body's ability to grow and birth a healthy baby, and in the family's right to choose how they are cared for during pregnancy and birth.
I have a background in hospital birth as an OB-tech, and as a doula and began studying midwifery in 2009. I was a midwifery student for about 4 years and studied with multiple preceptors in the Four Corners area and studied abroad in the Philippines. I have been licensed and practicing in Colorado and New Mexico since 2014 and feel so blessed to provide midwifery services to families in the community I love.
I live in Ignacio on a horse ranch with my husband and three amazing children. We all enjoy spending time as a family with our many animals and in the beautiful outdoors that surround us.
Please contact me directly with any questions about the midwifery model of care or homebirth, or to schedule a complementary interview before initiating prenatal care.
