You’ve probably heard that a birth that’s as natural and drug-free as possible is best for baby, but maybe you aren’t sure you can do it.
You may feel confused or overwhelmed by conflicting information about pregnancy and childbirth, unsure what to believe. Perhaps you’ve considered out-of-hospital birth in your home or a local birth center, or waterbirth, but those options seem too unconventional or intimidating. Or maybe you would just like someone to talk to someone about the changes happening to your body, a place to get information about how to grow the happiest, healthiest baby.
There is a way to change your perspective on childbirth, and a place to get the support, information and encouragement you need and want.
