More about what we do
With home births, we believe tools can be very beneficial for your labor and birth.
Tools – anything used as a means of accomplishing a task or purpose
Up to 50% of home births are water births. Water creates a buoyancy of mom's belly, which
gives her relief and also helps the baby position. Just like when you take a bath, it relaxes you,
water really helps most moms relax, helping contractions are less painful and the cervix to open up.
Tools in labor and birth can include:
● simply mom changing positions frequently to help the baby rotate or get their head aligned properly to help Mom's cervix dilate better
● Counterpressure of the hips to help open up the pelvis
● An exercise ball ● Massage
● Walks ● Showers ● Water
● Herbs and homeopathic
