Birth Is Empowering

Choosing Home Birth allows for a truly uninterrupted childbirth experience. You can enjoy the gentle surroundings of your own home throughout your entire birthing process. You have ultimate freedom to choose how and with whom you'll labor and birth. The lower levels of stress in women who experience childbirth in a familiar and comfortable environment have been proven to decrease complications for the mother and baby, naturally making your home a safe alternative. 

Environment affects the body’s ability to release endorphins that can reduce pain, and aid in the release of hormones that facilitate bonding with a new baby. A comfortable, stress-free environment creates a safer and more satisfying birth experience.

Birth is a normal part of a woman's life.  It can be a sacred, life-changing journey, and an empowering experience that gives one strength, power, humility and compassion.  A home birth supports all of this.
