LABORING AT HOME
Birthing your baby as you vision it, at home, has been a normal part of life for centuries. The experience of birthing your baby at home allows you to enjoy the comfort and familiarity of your own space: the scent of the sheets, the softness of the pillows, your favorite essential oils, your favorite music, the sacred touch of your loved ones. With all of your senses aroused, you can connect with the innate ability inside you to birth your baby naturally, which will reduce the need for medical intervention.
Pure Birth's Midwives will join you at your home when you are in active labor, bring all the needed supplies and equipment, and quietly "set up" in an area nearby while you labor. We encourage you to eat and drink freely, and implement comfort measures to keep your body and mind supported through your experience.
We will monitor you and your baby throughout to make sure that labor is progressing safely. We also encourage our mamas to move in their labor: dancing (belly dancing in particular), hip rotations, and slow dancing with your partner. All of that hip swaying helps your baby "move down" and get ready for birth.
Hydrotherapy, such as showering or laboring in a bathtub or birth tub, is another wonderful option we offer to our clientele.
Overall we want our clients to feel supported to labor freely throughout their home or yard, and to use all the tools your home offers. We trust that your body and your baby synergistically unite and guide you through your birth journey.
