- Post-partum care

- Breastfeeding support
Our Certified Nurse Midwives strive to be a partner in your care; providing pregnancy and well woman care to women throughout their lifetime.
Specialty Areas of Care Include:
Breastfeeding is best for moms because it reduces the risk of certain cancers; breast milk is best for babies because it provides protection from allergies and certain respiratory infections. Our Lactation Room provides a private space for moms to learn about breastfeeding and receive breastfeeding support from your health care provider.

Hackley Community Care is excited to offer the Centering Pregnancy model of care to expectant mothers. Centering Pregnancy is a model of care developed by the Centering Healthcare Institute and integrates three components of prenatal care within a group setting: health assessment, education, and support.
The model brings together a group of 8-12 women that are in the same trimester of their pregnancy and expected to deliver around the same time. Facilitated by an OB provider, the group will learn care skills for themselves and their infants during pregnancy, their births and during the postpartum period.
Centering Pregnancy consists of 10 sessions over a 6- month period that are 2 hours in length. Sessions begin June 2015 and you can register by calling 231.737.1335 and press Option #3.
If you are feeling scared or unsure about keeping your unborn baby, we urge you to talk to your Nurse Midwife or OB provider immediately. Often, the message of Safe Delivery does not get shared until it’s too late: once a baby has been abandoned or murdered.
Please don’t abandon your baby. Safe Delivery allows parents to surrender their newborn child no more than 72 hours old, to an employee inside and on duty at any hospital, fire department, police station, or by calling 9-1-1. Safe Delivery is a safe, legal and anonymous alternative to abandonment or murder and releases the newborn for placement with an adoptive family. Call the Safe Delivery hotline to discuss your options at 866-733-7733.
Remember this is the safe, legal way and anonymous. Visit www.michigan.gov/safedelivery for more information.
