birthstream | midwives

Birthstream is a homebirth practice of licensed midwives providing care to families in Yolo, Solano, and Sacramento counties since 1977.

We believe that pregnancy, birth and breastfeeding are natural, normal functions of a woman's body. Of equal importance, we believe that attending to a person's emotions and spirit is an essential part of midwifery care.

We recognize pregnancy and birth as defining parts of a family's life. Integrating birth into the whole of family life empowers the woman and strengthens family bonds.

Our services include comprehensive prenatal, labor and birth, and postpartum care for mother and baby both immediately after the birth and extending to 6 weeks postpartum.

In addition, we offer Waterbirth, placenta encapsulation, Well Woman visits including pap test, STI screening, and family planning counseling.  Postpartum Care packages now available for families planning hospital births.
