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 Maimonedes Hospital or Brooklyn Birth Center in Brooklyn.
Bluebird Midwifery was created by Catherine Clark, CNM in 2006. 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 maintaining a small practice, we hope to foster intimate and long lasting relationships with clients and 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. We support women’s choice in childbirth and respect any client decision within the realm of safety. In addition, we provide postpartum visits in your home hoping to avert any breastfeeding issues and to guide you through the initial and sometimes challenging entry into parenthood.
We understand 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. We support and validate all of women’s experiences. Through education and continuing support, we strive to empower women and to create the most safe and positive birth experience possible.
