Shira & Chloë work together to provide holistic, seamless fertility care from the intake visit through all appointments and at-home IUIs in order to best support you as you expand your family. You might have your first intake visit with either Shira or Chloë, and after that emails will be responded to by that week's on-call midwife. Similarly, texts will be responded to and IUIs will be done by one or both midwives based on availability. Occasionally, if neither midwife is available during your ovulation time, trusted back-up providers will be called in to provide IUIs as needed. Shira & Chloë always prioritize your care and will attend your IUIs if at all possible, giving you ample notice if this may not be the case.
