Some mothers need to birth in a hospital setting, but don't want to miss out on midwifery care. For these mothers, collaborative care meets both needs. Our  clients can have midwifery care throughout their pregnancies and a planned hospital birth with their midwife there for support, followed by comprehensive postpartum/newborn care and breastfeeding support. 


We will do our best to work with your hospital based provider to coordinate prenatal visit schedules and information to ensure you receive excellent continuity of care.

  • One prenatal visit to meet your midwife or OB and go over your birth plan.
  • Continuous support from the onset of labor until 2 hours after the birth.
  • A discount on placenta encapsulation services

Placenta Encapsulation

Placenta Encapsulation - $200

Placenta encapsulation is a process where your placenta is dehydrated, ground into powder and put into capsules for you to take during the postpartum period. Many women report improvements in mood, feeling calmer and more centered, increased milk supply, and boosted energy levels.


We offer placenta encapsulation services to moms all over the MidValley, including Albany, Corvallis, Lebanon, Sweet Home, Scio, Salem, and the surrounding areas.


We charge $200 for placenta encapsulation, with a $50 discount for birth clients.  This includes your placenta capsules, dosing instructions, a placenta print and cord keepsake. There is an additional charge for pickup more than 35 miles away. 


If you're interested in placenta encapsulation you can email us at midvalbirth@gmail.com or fill out the contact form. We will contact you to make arrangements to pick up your placenta once you've given birth.

General Breastfeeding Support

We are well qualified to help with a variety of breastfeeding issues. During your visit we will collect a detailed health history, discuss your birth and any factors that may have impacted your breastfeeding relationship, discuss your concerns, do a thorough evaluation of baby and observe a nursing session, offering tips and support. Follow up visits are scheduled as needed, and we are available between visits for text and phone support. 

Tongue Tie/Lip Tie Evaluation and Referral

Tongue and lip ties can have a serious impact on the breastfeeding relationship, but are often undiagnosed. It is essential to have a lactation consultant who is skilled at diagnosing ties and can provide you with a referral to someone able to fully release any oral restrictions. We have experience and training in diagnosing ties and are able to provide timely referrals to area providers with training to release both tongue and lip ties.
