Working With Your Body’s Natural Abilities

Your body was designed to give birth without the need for medical management or help. For low-risk women, home birth is a reasonable choice for those wanting an intimate, supported, and autonomous birth experience. A landmark study** confirms that among low-risk women, planned home births result in low rates of interventions without an increase in adverse outcomes for mothers and babies. There are many benefits to birthing at home with your chosen midwife, as opposed to birthing in a birthing center or a hospital. Often the other choices involve providers with a rotating call schedule, so you don’t know who will attend your birth. The other key factor in choosing home birth is never disrupting the labor process or the postpartum bonding by having to get into a car and travel to or from your birthing place.
