Homebirth

Birthing at home is wonderful and sacred. The labour unfolds at it's own pace and birth occurs in it's own time with less likelihood of complications occurring.

Homebirth

By Jane Palmer

Homebirth can be a safe birth choice for women. As a midwife I have been privileged to be present at births in many and varied places; hospital labour wards, operating theatres, motel rooms, peoples' homes and even a Tee Pee on a farm. While hospitals are essential if complications arise and are another choice of birth place for women, birthing at home is wonderful and sacred. The labour unfolds at it's own pace and birth occurs in it's own time with less likelihood of complications occurring. Women are more likely to feel supported and comfortable in their own environment as they travel the birth journey.
