I’m looking for pregnancy resources in Southern Nevada

My goal is to offer everyone an array of resources and referrals in order to plan the best birth possible, whether it’s in the hospital or with another midwife. There are an array of resources in the area.

What are some of your clients saying?

“We met, and liked her right away. She knew the answers to all of our questions, and we shared so much in common. There was no doubt I wanted her to assist in the delivery of my baby.”

A Message from the Midwife

Meet Kathya Raebel, DEM
kathya-raebel-dem-homebirth-midwifeMy mission is to educate parents and help them make an informed decision for their family. There are so many options out there for parents and I continue to be surprised by the number of people who do not know about the world of natural birth.

I have collected information on birth preparation, prenatal health and nutrition, and a healthy postpartum. It is also a resource for finding pediatricians, holistic baby shops, supplies for waterbirth and so many other resources specific to the Las Vegas and surrounding area. If there is anything I missed please contact me.

Common Questions

What other expenses may I have?

Lab fees and ultrasounds are not included. If you would like a water birth, their will be a technician fee for setup. You will also have to get a birthing kit which will include essentials for your birth and postpartum. You will also have to collect items from the needs list.

How many people can be at my birth?

As many people as you like. It’s your day. I will bring an assistant midwife.

Will I get to meet your assistant?

Yes, of course. During prenatal care you will have the opportunity to meet my assisting midwife and get to know her.

Do you do water birth?

Yes. That is one of the most wonderful and relaxing tools that I can offer my clients! For an additional fee, a birthing pool can be setup and cleaned up for you. Learn more about my waterbirth services here.
