Am I a Good Candidate
for Birth Center or Home Birth?
Healthy normal pregnancies can be an intimate and empowering experience!
“There is a secret in our culture, and it’s not that birth is painful.
It’s that women are strong.”
~ Laura Stavoe Harm
You are a GREAT candidate for birth center or home birth if:
You have a desire to have an unmedicated, peaceful, uninterrupted, natural birth.
You trust your body and believe it can "birth your baby"
You want to be able to "listen" to your body and move in ways that will help birth your baby. (Not be constrained to a hospital bed).
You are in good health!
Most women are great candidates! Some concerns may require additional care from a MFM (Maternal Fetal Medicine provider): high blood pressure (above 140/90), low or high amniotic fluid levels, positive HIV, anemia (below 8), unmanaged diabetes, neurological disorders, heart, lung or kidney disease, substance abuse.
“When you change the way you view birth,
the way you birth will change.”
