The experience of being pregnant, giving birth, and caring for a new baby all involve an overwhelming number of choices – choices about what to do and eat during pregnancy, what to purchase for your newborn, how to make adjustments to your home to make room for the baby, and the list continues. As you prepare for your new baby, one of the main choices on your mind may be where to give birth, and you may be stuck between choosing the hospital or the comfort of your own home.
While not for everyone, many women in the Fort Mill, South Carolina area continue to give birth in their homes, and when they do, I am there to support them. An at-home birth may be beneficial for you if:
- You want to move around in your own home while you labor. You are also able to remain in a familiar environment and ultimately make choices that make you as comfortable as possible.
- You want to choose who will be present at the birth of your child. An at-home birth allows you to have as many or as few people as you wish to attend.
- You want to have the ability to adjust the lighting, temperature, music, etc. to levels that will make you feel most comfortable as you labor and delivery.
I would be more than happy to give you more information about the many benefits of an at-home birth. Contact me at Birth Choice today to find out more about what you can expect from me as your midwife during pregnancy, labor, delivery, and postpartum.
