Many women consider natural childbirth empowering.
We believe childbirth should be a celebration of new life and view pregnancy as a normal, healthy process not a medical event or surgical procedure. A woman who is supported through labor, as she instinctively wants to birth, is a woman who will likely feel positive about her birth experience and future parenting skills. Her baby is more alert and placed on her skin (promoting maternal bonding) and breastfeeding is more likely to be enjoyable and successful.
Proponents of natural childbirth note that anesthetics can increase the likelihood of complications.
Labor may be slowed and the naturally occurring hormones of birth are not passed on to the baby. We stay with our clients and give them the time and attention they need to have a healthy and natural labor and birth.
Our approach to natural childbirth is designed to eliminate unnecessary medical interventions. We particularly do not promote the use of anesthetic medications and surgical interventions such as episiotomies, forceps, vacuum extractor deliveries and cesarean sections. We do, however, use such interventions when medically indicated.
Your care will be delivered in a warm, caring, family-centered environment designed to achieve a normal, natural, empowering and joyful birth. We use the time-tested and proven midwifery model of care with a sensible reliance on modern medicine.
We are a part of a large community of birth care providers and healthcare professionals and will advise and refer you to those who be best suited to support you. From infertility challenges to postpartum challenges, if we don’t have the support you need, we know someone who does.
We provide comprehensive prenatal care, physical examinations, and help you prepare for labor, delivery and early parenthood in the warm, relaxed, and supportive atmosphere.
VBAC (Vaginal Birth After Cesarean)
Learn how you may be able to have a natural birth even if you previous birth(s) were by Cesarean Section.
Your care does not end with the birth of your baby. We follow up with you at one week, then at four to five weeks to ensure you and your baby are doing well.
Also know as VBAC, this means that you may be able to deliver your next baby vaginally even if you have previously had a cesarean section.
