Home birth

Our ultimate goal as midwife is for you to have “Birth Your Way” with the appropriate guidance to ensure a spectacular outcome.

We will accomplish this goal by working with the woman’s body to deliver the baby in the most peaceful environment possible.

As midwife we will honor your choices, wishes, and desires to empower you to take control of your childbirth experience.

A healthy woman who delivers spontaneously, performs a job that cannot be improved upon

  • Having an out of hospital birth requires trust in your body and the birth process, trust in who is taking care of you, and taking responsibility for your care. It is natural to have some fears surrounding birth. As you receive education and information, as you actively participate in making decisions over your care, and your trust in the birth process increases, these fears usually minimize or totally go away.
  • Having a home birth will provide you with a tranquil, comfortable and familiar environment in which to bring your baby in to the world. No routine vaginal checks are done. You will be able to move around and change positions. You will be able to eat and drink as desired. Total support will be provided, including words of assurance, massage, counter pressure, etc. we will follow your well-beingclosely, as well as the baby’s. We bring all equipment necessary like oxygen, resuscitation equipment, and medication to stop excessive bleeding. We do not provide any type of anesthesia for the birth, or surgical birth. We do perineal guard to avoid tears but in the event that you do tear we do provide local anesthesia.
  • The use of water during your labor can be key to help you relax. A regular tub can be used for you to submerge yourself during labor. If you desire to plan for a water birth and do not have a big tub or Jacuzzi, ask us for information on how you can rent a portable tub or obtain an inflatable one. Feel free to check out books on water births.
  • During labor, direct support by a partner or close family member is encouraged. You are free to have anyone in your family attending the birth. In some occasions, the amount of people, or the conduct of the people around you, may interfere with your labor and birth. If this happens, we may need to limit their presence, for your benefit, and that of the baby. Otherwise, we believe birth to be an intimate, as well as a family event; therefore, we will respect your choice of the amount of people participating. If you have other children and wish them to be present as well, an adult, other than the direct support person, must be present to supervise them. We do encourage participation of siblings.
