Choosing a home birth lets you have more control over the birthing process.
Women have given birth at home since the beginning of time, and I support women who decide that this is the best option for themselves and their families. As a licensed midwife, I have helped many women in the Clover, South Carolina area have a healthy, safe home birth, and I would be honored to help you prepare to do the same.
There are many advantages of choosing a home birth over delivering in another setting, such as in a hospital. For instance, when you decide to give birth at home, you can:
- Move around as you progress through labor and eat and drink as you please
- Decide who you want to be there at the birth and what role any attendees will play
- Choose how involved siblings will be during the birth or in the hours afterward
Ultimately, opting for a home birth allows you to have more control over the experience and labor and deliver in an environment that is comforting and familiar to you. My role is to be there for you as you make decisions leading up to delivery day and act as a source of guidance and information, so you can make choices that resound with your personal wishes.
Please contact me today at Birth Choice if you would like to find out more about giving birth at home and learn if you are a good candidate. I look forward to helping you during pregnancy, labor and delivery, and as you adjust to life with a newborn.
