It is a cause for celebration! A woman’s body is designed to give birth. This design should be nurtured and left undisturbed. Being surrounded by other experienced women can give the birthing mother the reassurance she needs that all is well. In this quiet, undisturbed state a woman’s body will conduct the hormonal orchestration necessary to allow her child to be born. Most importantly, we want to strike a balance. The maternity care provider must conduct a fine-tuned interplay between targeted action and allowing nature to take its course. Only then will the experience of giving birth leave a woman feeling empowered and satisfied as she brings her gift into this world.
