How We Fit into Your Care:

 

You will find teams of highly trained physicians, nurses, midwives, social workers and other support staff who are indispensable in providing you and your baby the professional care you need. 

 

In these unusual circumstances, however, non-medical needs will emerge that affect the whole family. As your companions, we help you and your circle of family and friends in finding solutions, not just for mom and baby, but for all who share this common concern. 

 

We are a volunteer community to help you on this journey, each of us, strangers at first, but having more in common than imaginable. At times we,  too,  felt alone, vulnerable and needing answers where there seemed to be none. We hope to make your experience easier and to help you to find meaning in it all.

 

What Does It Cost

 

All our services are free, we do not actively participate in fundraising activities, and we do not accept contributions from parents. Thus, there are no obstacles to anyone receiving our care.

 

Do We Need a Doctor’s Referral?

 

No. Self-referrals are welcome and anyone can refer others to us. Simply call us 816-931-2539 or send an email. care@alexandrashouse.com.


 

Even though we are located in the heart of America, we have served babies and families around the world. Do not let location hinder you in reaching out for help. It is always our privilege to serve.

 

All personal face -to- face meetings must be prearranged and scheduled. Thank you.
