About this pro

Claudia Conn, CPM and Debbie Schneider, CPM are both experienced and caring midwives working in partnership to provide full-scope midwifery as well as well-woman care. 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 to 2-hour prenatal appointment, we provide ample time and opportunity for education, discussion and relationship building, allowing for nurturing confidence and trust.

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 believe that a woman's body is designed to give birth, and that pregnancy and birth are normal processes. 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.

We do home birth and water birth in the greater Atlanta area!

    I've had the pleasure of seeing Constance, Debbie and Lacey with my last 2 pregnancies and homebirths. Debbie and Lacey attended the births and I felt I could trust them 100% before, during and after. They took such good care of me and then my baby too! I was able to relax and just focus on birthing and listening to my body. These women truly love their jobs and I feel are among the very best in their field. I highly recommend them to anyone wishing to welcome their baby at home.

    Debbie and Claudia are amazing midwives, with many years of experience. My prenatal care was excellent, and the birthing experience was serene and enlightening for all who were there to witness it. I will be forever grateful for these wonderful women for the amazing support and wisdom that they provided.

Q&A

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Studies continue to consistently affirm that planned, attended homebirth is as safe or safer than hospital birth. Our practice, firmly based in the midwifery model of care, allows issues of safety to be appropriately addressed, while uplifting and honoring the wonderfully human and spiritual aspects of birth. 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.
