Attends hospital births? All Hospitals
I will meet you at home, and go to the hospital with you. You will be supported until the baby is born, up to 2 hours after, or when the baby latches well and you are comfortable. I attend all types of hospital births (natural, medicated, or caesarean), and work with all providers.
Attends birth center births? All Birth Centers
I am happy to help comfort you and get labor into a rhythm at home before heading to the birth center. Same as at the hospital, I will remain with you until the baby is born, up to 2 hours after, or when the baby latches well and you are comfortable.
Attends home births? Any Home Birth
I am happy to attend home births! As long as there is a primary care provider, I don't attend unassisted home births, unless of course it's so fast the provider can't make it in time!

Client Testimonials for Chelsie Determan

Aurora Christy

Chelsie was fantastic support.  I texted her when I was pretty sure I was in early labor and after I called her to say it was time she was at my home within a few contractions (I think).  She provided great support when my wife had to go be with my daughter everytime she woke up at night, she was there to cheer me on while I breathed through each contration.  I look back on the birth with fondness and a of being feeling encompassed in support.  I remember feeling a bit overwhelmed at one point with back to back contractions (especially after my midwife telling me I was 5 cm) but Chelsie's presence and encouragment helped me to stay calm.  Thank you Chelsie for everything!
