What does a home birth look like?
Once labor begins, Sharon, Nancy or Emily will come to your home and prepare it for birth. This can involve setting up a birthing tub, covering your furniture and rugs, preparing meals and helping ensure everything is ready for your new baby’s arrival.
By the time your baby is ready to join the world, your midwives will be at your side. “Our goal is to support and facilitate your labor, delivery and postpartum care … no matter how long it takes.”
From start to finish, your birth process and postpartum care are managed as slowly as your body allows. This helps the placenta to come out easily, and for the umbilical cord to stop pulsating before we cut it. Most importantly, you will have plenty of time and space to bond with your baby as you settle into becoming a family.
