Normal, Healthy and Safe Pregnancy
Pregnancy and birth are normal, healthy processes. We let mother nature take its course. Through our holistic pregnancy care, our certified nurse midwife, Katie Stam, educates you on what to expect when you’re expecting.
At our center in Neenah, we care for expectant mothers from Appleton, Green Bay, and throughout the state of Wisconsin. We perform only necessary testing and know when to (and when not to) utilize high technology for a pregnancy. This clinical insight and evaluation prevents problems before they happen. If an emergency arises, Dr. Kaldas and Dr. Menya are right there to help.
We Care About Your Pregnancy
Many things affect the health of a mother and her unborn child. Lifestyle, diet, environment and more can affect your child’s health. Our team will help you identify risk factors and present safe alternatives to keep you and your baby healthy.
Under our care, you will be constantly cared for and safe. Katie will literally hold your hand for hours during labor. Our goal is to make your delivery exactly what you want, whether it’s medicine-free or with an epidural. We’ll go over all of your birth options and help you decide what’s best for you. We’re there for you.
What is Midwifery?
It’s naturally empowering women to give birth the way they want to. Midwives support women through conception, labor, birth and postpartum. They’re your cheerleader, encouraging you along the way and making sure you and your baby are safe. They help expectant mothers work with nature to give birth naturally, with fewer interventions and faster recovery time.
Certified midwives are experts on pregnancy, childbirth, and how to best care for newborns. They help new mothers care for their newborn, breastfeeding support, and make those first days and weeks of your baby’s life as worry-free as possible.
Midwives are seeing more and more patients every year because they let women make decisions about their care and adapt to their needs and schedule. Midwifery limits intervention, lowers C-section rates, and only uses an OB/GYN when absolutely necessary.
Mary Williams walked into my life when I needed her the most, during labor.I couldn’t have asked for a more gentle and kindhearted midwife to deliver my first baby. The reason I chose a midwife was because it was important to me to share this life changing experience with someone who was concerned about my emotional as well as my primary care needs. Words can not capture the essence of Mary. Mary is caring, loving, and kind. During labor she made both my significant other and me feel like it was a family event, not just me having a baby. She made us feel empowered and comfortable. She also supported and guided our decisions during labor in a very affectionate way. It was truly an amazing experience to have Mary by my side.- Melissa / Appleton, WI
