Mackenzie Rose Midwifery provides holistic and personalized fertility, home birth, and well body care serving indviduals and families from the foothills of Nevada City to the urban landscape of Sacramento.
Self care is self love.
Well body care with a licensed midwife is a uniquely holistic experience. It is a proactive way to maintain good health and learn about your unique body. At Mackenzie Rose Midwifery, I offer comprehensive 60-90 minute appointments. This ensures that we have enough time to do a thorough and in-depth medical history, a head-to-toe physical exam, and still have plenty of time to have a cup of tea and get all of your questions answered. There are NO long wait times in a cold impersonal office and absolutely NO uncomfortable metal stirrups.
Depending on your needs, well body exams can include:
Review of birth control options
Other lab work as needed
While I do not identify as LGBTQ+, I welcome LGBTQ+ clients for well body exams.
Vaginal steaming is an excellent and gentle self care tool that can help with fertility and conception, menstrual cramps and other menstrual issues, fibroids, irregular vaginal discharge, as well serving as a healing postpartum ritual.
Steaming involves sitting over a pot of steaming herbs for 10-30 minutes. I get you all set up and comfortable, you can bring a book, listen to music, meditate, or catch up on your favorite podcast.
At your first appointment, I will go over your health history with you so that I can create a specific herbal blend and steaming protocol that addresses your particular needs.
I want lab work, especially blood draws to be as easy and stress free as possible. I do all lab work and blood draws in house so that you do not have to make yet another appointment (especially if you have a couple of extra kiddos in tow) to another facility.
For some folks, blood draws are easy while for others, needles can have a lot of trauma associated with them. If there is anxiety and trauma we talk about it. When I do blood draws I will help make you as comfortable as possible, get you a cup of tea and/or some chocolate, and distract you with bad jokes.
