Full Circle Midwifery provides a harmonious blend of traditional midwifery care with modern advancements in DeLand, Florida.  As midwives and mothers, our philosophy is deeply rooted in the idea that pregnancy and birth are normal, physiological processes.

The Midwifery Model of Care

The philosophy of Full Circle is based on the principles of the Midwives Model of Care™. These principles acknowledge and recognize pregnancy and birth as normal and important life events. The midwifery model of care includes:

  • Monitoring the physical, psychological, and social well-being of the mother throughout the childbearing cycle

  • Providing the mother with individualized education, counseling, and prenatal care, continuous hands-on assistance during labor and delivery, and postpartum support

  • Minimizing technological interventions

  • Identifying and referring women who require obstetrical attention

Evidence has proven that the application of this woman-centered model reduces incidence of birth injury, trauma, and cesarean section.

Home birth

Home birth offers a woman and her family a deeper level of involvement. Birthing in a calm and familiar environment is a beautifully profound and unique experience!

We provide complementary use of labor tools such as a professional birth pool, birth stools, herbal care, TENS unit, and more! 

You only need a midwife when you need a midwife. We facilitate physiologic, natural birth and are trained to manage complications should they arise.

Family Focused

We acknowledge pregnancy and birth can bring profound growth and change to the entire family. If desired, your loved ones are welcome to attend your appointments and actively engage in the process. 

We love to involve siblings during heart tone checks and visually demonstrate what position your baby is in with our baby doll and pelvis model.

Should you choose, we are fully supportive of siblings participating in cord cutting or your spouse catching the baby.

 

We fully respect your decisions, knowing that you are the best and final expert on your body and your baby. Your care, your way.

Wellness Centered 

We believe that women have a right to choose the place of their birth and to birth in a safe, nurturing place assisted by caring attendants.  

We encourage you to hone in on your intuition and be an active participant in your care. Your Midwife will assume the role of guide through shared decision making; pointing you towards evidence-based information and research, relaying professional experience, and recognizing your own individual preferences. Together we will review the options available to you, assess your risk factors, and formulate a plan that resonates best with you.

We provide all the visits and medical care you need before, during, and after your baby is born. These appointments can be done in our office, or from the comfort of your own home.  You will have direct access to providers via phone call and ClientCare portal messaging.

“My experience with Estee and Full Circle Midwifery has been a sweet treasure and now friendship. Estee is both wise and down to earth. Able to hear mom and honor her space and wishes. She creates a safe space with her presence for mothers to birth in. I love how her understanding of birth goes deeper than the physiological but of the energetic side as well.”

When I first met Estee early in my pregnancy, she asked what I pictured when it was time to give birth. I explained a strong team, and a Midwife who brought calmness and felt supportive and trusting. Estee gave all that plus more. She doesn’t feel only like a midwife who helped you birth your baby, but also a friend. She supports you to feel empowered. She’s extremely knowledgeable and passionate about what she does. A birth is the most intimate experience a woman can go through and you want someone you will remember for a lifetime who helped guide you through that, Estee is that someone. Eliya, Andrew and I have so much love for you Estee, thank you for making that day feel that much more special!

Six months ago, I called you after midnight telling you  “I’m in labor”, it was late, you were just finished with another mom, you were tired, but you didn’t make me feel uncomfortable to call you, NOT AT ALL. You just came and stayed with us  for more than 12 hours! You are a hero Estee - a very strong and loving woman. You helped very well through that phenomenal night. Me and my baby Elan will never ever forget what you did for us. That night was one night in a life time, and I’m so thankful that you were the one in there. I love you forever.
