Midwife Care ~ Water Birth ~ Home or Birth Center
Most Mothers who have experienced this type of birth will tell you that the water helped to soothe the “pains” of labor and that their babies seemed to “flow right out of them”. As a “Mermaid”, many mothers are choosing to birth while in the water. As an advocate for Mothers and a waterbirth myself, I support Underwater Birth as a safe and gentle way to birth.
Midwives are trained professionals with expertise and skills in supporting women to maintain healthy pregnancies and have optimal births and recoveries. Midwives provide women with individualized care uniquely suited to their physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and cultural needs. Midwifery is a woman-centered empowering model of maternity care.
There are so many benefits of water birth! Birthing in water facilitates mobility and enables the mother to assume comfortable positions for labor and birth. It speeds up labor, provides significant pain relief, promotes relaxation, it gives mother a private protected space, reduces perineal trauma and eliminates episiotomies, is a gentle way to welcome baby!
The place in which you choose to birth is so important. Being able to birth in the quiet familiar environment of your home or the beautiful, serene environment of the birth center is an experience that Mothers and families love!
Once a mother has had a waterbirth, she definitely wants to birth like that for ALL of her babies!
