Postpartum limits/restrictions: No indoor smoking * Postpartum Shifts are a minimum of 90 minutes per visit (though I highly recommend at least 4 hours per visit, for your benefit) Unless you are also a birth doula client, my travel range for postpartum clients is limited to Palm Beach, West Palm Beach, and other addresses that are a driving distance of less than 10 miles and 15-20 minutes (depending on time of the day) from my location. This includes Lake Clarke Shores, eastern Lake Worth (near I-95 and east), Lantana, Atlantis, and Manalapan.

Attends hospital births? Some Hospitals
I'm happy to travel to the following hospitals: * Good Samaritan Medical Center * JFK Medical Center * St. Mary's Medical Center * Wellington Regional Medical Center * Jupiter Medical Center * Palms West Hospital * Bethesda Hospital East * Boca Raton Regional Hospital. *** Out of respect for mothers with a history of precipitous labors, if you have evidence to believe you may have rapid birth, I reduce my travel range to the following hospitals: * Good Samaritan Medical Center * St. Mary's Medical Center * JFK Medical Center

Attends birth center births? All Birth Centers

Attends home births? Some Home Births
I happily support unassisted home birth. I do not attend home births when a member of the household will be smoking inside the home.
