Exploring Home Birth with Midwife Ashley Jones of Fly True Midwifery
March 26, 2020
As COVID-19 circles around many communities, bringing social distancing and many mandatory shelter in place orders with it, it seems as though families are exploring their birth location and provider options now more than ever before. In our local community, Midwife Ashley has personally seen a spike in new patients, some even transferring to her from OB care, for an option in home birth. Enjoy this time we spend together, as she shares points of safety and answers the many questions I have gotten as families prepare for birth, including cost, insurance coverage, prenatal appointments and postpartum care.
"My philosophy on birth is simple. Birth is a natural, normal event that typically needs little intervention when the birthing person is low risk. Where I focus is on the birthing person's and their support system's experience. By providing comprehensive, personalized prenatal care, my clients learn about me as I learn about them. Through this common learning, trust is established. I focus on empowering my clients to make the necessary decisions throughout pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. With the combination of trust and empowerment, my clients are able to form their own story, as I look after the safety of all."
