The main purpose for Childbirth Options is to prepare expectant couples for their child's birth. I want to educate them in a natural birthing process.There are certain circumstances that can alter that; in that case, I will educate them regarding those circumstances, to prepare them for unexpected occurrences during the labor.
My role as a midwife, childbirth educator, and doula is to make sure the mother has a good birth experience. I want to show them a holistic way to have the baby, using the drugs as a last resort and to show them that the labor will go well if you listen to your body and avoid inducing and intervening in labors normal process.
I expect my clients to be enthusiastic for the knowledge about pregnancy and the development of their baby. I would like a parent to ask me questions if they are concerned about situations that might occur. I want mothers to learn all the birth options they have available to them. I will teach them that labor is hard, but that most of the time nature will take its course, and there are natural methods to handle pain. I want mothers to have the best experience possible.
I believe in the natural ways of birth, and surgery should be used only when the safety of the mother or baby warrants it. I want to teach ways that involve medicines only if necessary. I want the mothers to be knowledgeable about fetal development the stages of labor, and the advantages of normal birth and risks of cesarean, so they can make informed choices about their own births.
