Natural Birth

Natural birth is one of the most challenging things a woman can do in her life and, despite the pain, it’s also one of her most empowering and fulfilling moments. My Family Birth Center understands that such a momentous event requires a birth method that the mom-to-be feels safest and most comfortable with.

Many mothers-to-be find this sense of safety and comfort in natural birth and they choose to go through the delivery without the help of medications to speed up to process. Natural childbirth is a method of childbirth with little or no medical intervention and is usually done in non-hospital settings. The mother often practices relaxation and breathing techniques to control pain and to ease delivery.

With natural childbirth, you can be more in-touch with your birthing experience because you have more options available. My Family Birth Center offers so many pain-relieving techniques, labor positions, birthing positions, staff, etc. to choose from as you work your way through a birth plan that suits you and serves you well. It’s a wonderful way participate in your very own personalized birth story and, ultimately, have a satisfying birth experience.

As for cost, giving birth with a licensed midwife costs only 1/3 of the price of normal hospital delivery. My Family Birth Center also accepts many insurance plans, just ask if your care is covered.

In fact, My Family Birth Center has a strong team of licensed midwives and doulas on call 24/7 who can assist you with your delivery. They have been trained and equipped to guide, assist, and support you all throughout the process. Their scope also includes setting up, cleaning up, and even handling potential complications including preparing for hospital transport.

It’s important to note that not every woman who wishes to give birth at home is a right candidate. Home births may not be the right option for women having high-risk pregnancies, including having a multifetal pregnancy, having had a previous cesarean section, being diabetic, having high blood pressure, etc.

Natural Water Birth

Water birth is largely known for its benefits in pain management. The use of warm water during labor offers a soothing and relaxing comfort to the mother…this especially provides some relief to back pain.

Maternal Hydrotherapy

By helping mothers relax physically and mentally, water births can, in turn, help lower high blood pressure that’s caused by anxiety, as well as allow the body to produce more pain-inhibiting endorphins. Water births are known to be gentle for the baby and less stressful for the mother.

My Family Birth Center is equipped facilities and staff members to accommodate water births. With relaxing tubs, comfortable beds, a fully functional kitchen, laundry equipment, and spacious interiors, we can give you, your baby, and your loved ones a calm, safe, and comfortable environment.

Healthy women with straightforward, low-risk pregnancies who are giving birth after 37 weeks are usually fine for water births. However, if you are epileptic, overweight, going into premature labor, or have been induced using an artificial hormone, water birth may not be best for you.
