Having a Baby is a Very Personal Experience
When you’re expecting… or planning a pregnancy, look for something that will help you make this pregnancy and birth a wonderful, safe, comfortable, and very personal experience while offering the highest quality care for you and your baby.
Today there are many places and ways to have your baby and there are many professionals offering care. How do you choose? One of the most important services of the birth center is the ability to help families make INFORMED CHOICES about their care givers and place of birth. Freedom of choice and maximum personal control are supported by a comprehensive childbirth education program based on medical research and years of experience with alternative health care. We even provide you with a free tour where you can come and see and educate your self.
Most women prefer to have prenatal care and deliver their babies where they have a choice of methods, birth positions and control over what is done to them and their babies. They prefer care givers who listen.
At Natural Birth Women’s Center, we provide you with the freedom to choose your place of birth, method of delivery, (such as water birth), and position for delivery. You have a choice of care givers and who is with you during delivery. Caregivers can be experienced midwives well versed in alternatives to medical intervention or caring physicians who support our philosophy of a gentle birth. Your family and those you love and care about are always welcome for births in our center. It is your choice who is there.
These choices you make should be based on your knowledge of the alternatives, your needs, desires, philosophy and experience.
