Home Birth

Why people choose to birth at home:

  •  your preferences are prioritized

  • care is tailored to your specific needs

  • you never have to drive to another location mid-birth

  • you choose who is at your birth, and in what capacity

  • being in your own space lowers the risk of infection

  • you eat, drink, shower and bathe at your leisure- you get to just do your thing!

  • there are no unnecessary interventions

  • there is a low risk of cesarian birth

  • you birth in whatever position, in whatever location feels best for you

  • your baby remains with you. Always.

  • Post partum care is gentle, thorough, and frequent for both baby and parent

...and so much more!​
