Bluebird Midwifery is a service to the women of Brooklyn. Located on Brooklyn’s Columbia Street waterfront, Bluebird Midwifery provides individualized, holistic, compassionate and respectful care to women of all ages. Gyn, prenatal and postpartum care is provided in a comfortable and supportive atmosphere in the Union Street office. Births take place at Methodist Hospital in Park Slope, Brooklyn.
Bluebird Midwifery was created by Catherine Clark, CNM. For Catherine, the formation of Bluebird Midwifery is an effort to glue together the often disjointed maze of women’s healthcare. Clinical care, emotional support, nutritional healing, health counseling and education are all aspects of your care. By creating a solo practice, Catherine hopes to foster intimate and long lasting relationships with her clients. Catherine accepts a limited number of prenatal clients in order to maintain the ability to provide them the highest quality of care.
Bluebird Midwifery strives to nurture healthy transitions into parenthood. To this end, natural birth is encouraged, though not required. In addition, Catherine provides postpartum visits in your home hoping to avert any breastfeeding issues and to guide you through the initial and sometimes challenging entry into parenthood.
Catherine understands that having a baby is a physical, spiritual, social, and psychological event. It changes relationships and alters self-perception. Pregnancy and Childbirth can be a triumphant, joyful, fearful and challenging time. Catherine supports and validates all of women’s experiences. Through education and continuing support, Catherine strives to empower women and to create the most safe and positive birth experience possible.
