When pregnancy, labor, and birthing are supported in a way that does not interfere with the woman’s natural instincts, it can be one of the most empowering and fulfilling experiences in her life. When birthing in a natural setting, such as a birthing suite or in your own home, it feels more relaxed and comfortable for the entire family unit.

This experience has the potential to impact everyone present in the deepest of ways. Delivering your baby at a birthing center that most feels at home or at your home gives you the choice of who you want to attend your birth and who cares for you. You can choose what foods you feel like eating and what you want to drink during the time of childbirth.

During your labor, you can walk, dance or rest following your body’s natural instincts. Feeling safe and supported at the time of childbirth helps your labor progress normally. If you desire, you can give birth in water and then move to your own cozy bed.
