Hearts & Hands has offices located in Peterborough and Bedford, New Hampshire. Evening and weekend visits are available at both offices.
In general, we serve women within a one hour driving radius of Peterborough for pregnancy care, but other considerations such road conditions, time of year, health needs and location of other midwives and medical facilities may influence whether it makes sense for me to be your midwife.
We can provide care and attend your birth at home, at The Birth Cottage in Milford, The Concord Birth Center in Concord, NH or at the Monadnock Birth Center in Swanzey.
We provide gynecological care at both the Peterborough and Bedford offices.
