Your Home…Your Birth…Your Way!

Constance (Claudia) Conn and Debbie Schneider are both highly skilled and experienced CPM's (Certified Professional Midwife) —specializing in homebirth and waterbirth. Working in partnership to provide full-scope midwifery care, including: prenatal care; labor and birth support; breastfeeding support; postpartum care; and holistic well-woman care from pre-conception to menopause; and well-newborn care.

Our office is located in Kennesaw, and we cover an area extending out 1 to 2 hours, serving all Greater Metro-Atlanta and North Georgia areas and into Tennessee.

Our approach to care is very woman—and family—centered. We encourage women to birth where and how they choose and offer a variety of home-birth options including water-birth.

We generally also have 2 or more apprentices in the practice, allowing our strong birth team to provide comprehensive 24/7 care and support to all the families we serve.

Studies continue to consistently affirm that planned, midwife attended homebirth is as safe or safer than hospital birth. We believe in and practice with Evidence-Based Guidelines, and the Midwifery Model of Care. Our statistics are much better than average, and by following these guidelines allows issues of safety to be appropriately addressed, while uplifting and honoring the wonderfully human and spiritual aspects of birth.

Our home-birth midwifery practice is firmly based on informed choice. We believe women and families have the right to determine their own care in pregnancy and birth. With each 1-2 hour prenatal appointment we provide ample time and opportunity for education, discussion and relationship–building allowing for and nurturing confidence and trust.

We believe that a woman’s body is designed to give birth and that pregnancy and birth are normal processes. We are dedicated to empowering women and honoring your cultural, religious, and personal requests within the bounds of safety. Beyond that, we also believe that birth is meant to a be key event in a woman’s life and a joyful and celebratory family event.

Check Out Sarah and Matthew Bivens PodCast Interview of Debbie Schneider, CPM!

Doing It At Home is a weekly podcast about home birth and our decision to go from a traditional hospital birth with an OBGYN to a natural birth at home with midwives. This is a raw and honest show that explores homebirth from every angle. We talk about the fears and judgements thrown at you when you choose home birth. We share resources that we found tremendously helpful for understanding our birthing options. We confess the magic and craziness in preparing for pregnancy, home birth, motherhood and fatherhood. We talk about having sex while pregnant and maintaining your connection and intimacy as a couple. We reveal how to stay centered and not lose yourself through pregnancy, and tons more! This show is all about adding an empowered conversation to the topic of home birth and natural birth, while keeping it real, grounded and fun. So strap in and join us as we’re doing it at home!

The Midwives Model of Care

The MMoC is based on the fact that pregnancy and birth are normal life processes.

The Midwives 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
  • The application of this woman-centered model of care has been proven to reduce the incidence of birth injury, trauma, and cesarean section.
