Hearing Screen Info
Hearing screening is recommended for all children at birth. The test that will be provided involves insertion of an ear-plug into the ear. A small tone will be delivered; the ear drum will return an echo to the machine. The machine measures this echo to determine how your baby/child's ears are functioning. The test takes approximately 15 min. Most babies born in the hospital receive this test before being discharged, babies born at home often have to go through additional steps to receive a hearing test. We at Breath of My Heart Birthplace want to invite you to take advantage of this free opportunity to ensure your baby is hearing well.
Developmental Screening Info
Developmental Screening is done using the Ages & Stages Questionnaire-3. This questionnaire asks you questions about skills your baby has developed, is beginning to develop, or has not yet acquired. It is completed by chatting, playing games,  talking about your child's strengths, and concerns you may have. Developmental screening is a fun way to learn about skills that you can support your child to develop to the best of their ability!

There's a Birthroom In the House!!!

There. We are off and running! Our birth room is finally done and many folks stopped by today to see the clinic and celebrate with us. All of us Breath of My Heart midwives: Nicolle, Jessica, Elena, and Michelle, all had such a feeling of pride and accomplishment as we put the finishing touches on the clinic and especially the birthroom. It has been a lot of work over the years but we did it! We can't thank enough the ones that helped us with the construction, the funding, and the encouragement.
