I believe in the wisdom of women's bodies and the innate ability to give birth. Over and over I've witnessed that when provided with a soothing atmosphere, some tincture of time, and a watchful eye, each woman will find their own unique way to give birth. Studies consistently demonstrate that out-of-hospital birth is a safe option under certain conditions: that the pregnancy is low risk, and that she has a well trained, experienced midwife.
Most births will progress in a normal fashion but in a small number of cases, potentially life threatening complications can arise necessitating an experienced midwife who has the capacity to manage these events efficiently and effectively. I am a highly trained and experienced professional. You can rest assured that you will have a capable and qualified midwife attending your birth!
