Natural Childbirth

If you are enjoying a natural pregnancy and considering natural childbirth, you already believe in yourself. You want to give your child a safe and healthy start.

Natural Pregnancy

When you choose to have a natural pregnancy and childbirth you are choosing to play an important role in your own care, along side your chosen caregiver(s). With a midwife, you will have a wealth of resources to call upon to support each step of your pregnancy and birth, rather than being limited to medical intervention alone. The resources section of this Web site can help, too.

With the best options, knowledge, holistic care, and positive support you will be better suited to enable your body to do its work, and avoid unnecessary medical intervention. What more could you want for what you care about most?

Natural Home Childbirth

Take two minutes to breathe deeply and envision the most perfect childbirth.

Who is with you?

What kind of beautiful or familiar environment are you in?

What surrounds you to give you strength and comfort?

Ahhhh. . . .

It feels good to be in control and have things your way, doesn’t it? It’s comforting, freeing and empowering.

This is homebirth.

Without the stresses generally associated with physician-attended births (unfamiliar people and environment, hospital schedules and policies, bright unnatural lighting, unknown tests, etc.), you are able to relax into your labor.

In a warm, familiar environment, you are able to give yourself the gift of space: for your body’s rhythm to take its natural course, to discover strength within yourself, and, most importantly, to love your baby.The family immediatly after a home water birth

Just as each woman’s dream childbirth is different, each homebirth story is different. It is the role of a midwife to help each dream come true, within the parameters set by the baby’s unique journey into the world. The midwife is a guide, mentor, educator, and professional dedicated to the most modern techniques to guard the safety of mother and baby.

For women with low-risk pregnancies, homebirth with a qualified midwife is as safe as hospital births. In fact, reducing stress and elevating comfort and joy has been shown to reduce pain and the need for unnecessary procedures, which can lead to other complications.
