Some moms say that going to the hospital and having an epidural is their perfect birth.
Others, say managing the contractions without pain meds is the way to go.
A small group of ladies in the USA will have health care and then deliver in the comfort of their own homes with family attending them.
What type of birth do you see for yourself?
Where would you like to be for that moment in time?
How are you preparing yourself (and your partner) for that?
Whatever you choose, a birth doula can be helpful to you. We provide education, support, comfort measures, and just plain old fashioned caring that you don't find as much anymore. We can be there for you before, during and for weeks after, the birth of your new baby. (or 2nd, 3rd, or more)
Congratulations on becoming pregnant!
