The World Health Organization recommends four best care practices to support a healthy birth.
The use of intravenous lines, continuous monitoring, and restricted movement can increase a woman's overall stress levels which, in turn, can potentially interfere with the natural birthing process.
Why It Matters
A woman's body is designed to grow, birth, and nourish a baby. The WHO recommends letting labor begin on its own, changing positions during labor, bringing in a loved one for support, and moving forward without interventions that aren't necessary as ways to promote a healthy, normal birth.
Our team wants to empower our patients and their families to create the birth experience that makes sense for them. We're proud to work with midwives, doulas, and OB-GYNs in this community to help those of you navigating pregnancy do just that through education, adjustments, massage, and more!
