Where do natural childbirths take place?
A. In the middle of nowhere with no access to doctors and hospitals?
B. At home?
C. In birth centres?
D. In hospitals?
Yes. Yes. Yes. And yes…though far less frequently.
Where do wonderful childbirths take place…natural or otherwise?
A, B, C, D, or E. all of the above?
You guessed it. The correct answer is E.
Who should research childbirth options?
A. Expectant moms?
B. Expectant dads?
C. Those who hope to have children in the future?
D. Those who know someone who’s going to have a baby?
E. Those who want to pursue a career as a doula or midwife, labour and delivery nurses, OBs…?
Again the answer is “all of the above”…and anyone else who is interested in this amazing part of the human life cycle.
Birth is as individual as you are. And each birth, even for the same woman, can be unique.
I would encourage you to do your research, make the choice that is right for you, and enjoy the precious gift of your new son or daughter.
If you have any questions about pregnancy, childbirth, or how a doula can make it a better experience, please feel free to ask.
