Meet with a midwife in our Sugar House office located 1709 E 1300 S, Suite 206, Salt Lake City, Utah 84109. Frequency of prenatal visits match community standard of care for obstetrical care visits. We see you monthly from eight or twelve weeks (or as early as you wish to come in after discovering you are pregnant) through 28 or 30 weeks, bi-monthly until 36 weeks and then weekly or until delivery. One home prenatal visit is customary around 36 weeks. Two home visits in the first week or two after birth to perform state mandated newborn screens are included as well as six weeks postpartum in the office. Our practice midwives are skilled to monitor normal healthy newborns in the first weeks of life.
Informed Consent, Informed Choice and client education is our priority regarding any diagnostic opportunity and option available to you. Complete diagnostics and prenatal imaging may be requested by Sego Lily Midwifery and performed for you in our location or at a partner clinic or physician’s office.
When clinical signs point to something outside of normal for midwifery care, we refer for consultation with physicians and/or Maternal Fetal Medicine at highly regarded facilities such as University Hospital and IHC. The professionals in these facilities have worked well with our practice to form collegial consultative relationships to help close the circle of care for women choosing or exploring out-of-hospital birth.
If a need arises during your course of care to transport in a more urgent manner, the closest emergency facility will be utilized or the facility of your choice based on prenatal conversations. In any transports during labor or immediate postpartum, the Sego Lily Midwifery staff will work toward a smooth transition of care and remain with you through the transport and transition and provide charts, labs and clinical details related to your history and care.
