Clients at DMA will have longer appointment times. Our goal is for women to feel heard and respected throughout their pregnancy and our office is designed with this in mind. We encourage your family and birth team to attend prenatal visits for your comfort. Pregnant women will have their belly checks done on a settee, rather than a gynecology table and the midwives will assist the client with taking their own vital signs and weight at each visit. We also perform all pregnancy related ultrasounds. During the ultrasound experience, clients will be involved and understand the results in real time.
