Midwives provide some of the greatest services a woman can receive during pregnancy; the gift of a natural and personalized childbirth experience.
Childbirth is already intimidating enough, especially if it’s your firstborn. The unknowns, hormones, and checkups can feel really overwhelming. Midwives are there to support you and guide you through this entire process. The gift of homebirth is one midwives and mothers curate together. Midwives are present to provide education, set you up for success, and support you; and your job is to create the day in a way that helps you feel at ease and empowered.
Home births focus on individualized and compassionate care. You get to call the shots. With a home birth you have the opportunity to have a water birth or give birth in any space in your home that makes you feel comfortable. Together with a midwife, you essentially create the perfect environment and the midwive is present to guide you.
Here are some of the best perks of an at-home birth.
💓 You can surround yourself with those you love, or decide to make it a rather intimate experience.
💓 It’s comfortable. You’re in your own home versus a hospital setting. You set the scene.
💓 You can switch positions, eat whenever you want, wear whatever you want, and for the most part, do whatever you want.
💓 Your children or partner can be a part of this beautiful moment.
💓 You have the option to give birth in water.
💓 Low rates of interventions (episiotomy, instrumental vaginal birth, and cesarean birth)
Your pregnancy, labor and delivery are truly some of the most significant moments in your life. Therefore you should be treated with the utmost care and respect throughout the nine months and beyond. It’s a life changing, empowering, and beautiful experience for the whole family.
