Our midwifery team offers care is tailored to the needs of your growing family and is designed to support you through the changes you will experience throughout your pregnancy. We have been committed to healthy children and families since our doors opened.
Promise Community Health Center's prenatal/OB team consists of two certified nurse midwives, Belinda Lassen and Pam Hulstein; registered nurses; and a medical assistant/interpreter. The midwifery team offers personal care tailored to you and your family throughout your pregnancy and after the birth of your child. Our midwives are experienced experts in pregnancy and childbirth.
Home Birth Alternative
As part of the midwives' care for you, a home birth alternative is offered. Our certified nurse midwives and staff will help you prepare for the home birth, provide care during labor and birth, and follow up with you andyour newborn. Healthy women with low-risk, uncomplicated pregnancies qualify for a home birth. To learn more, view this brochure.
Maternal and Newborn Home Visits
A unique model of care we provide is through home visits offered to all patients (mother and their newborns) after delivery. The visits are conducted by a nurse in the family's home 24-72 hours after delivery and include support with breastfeeding, care of newborn, and health of mother.
