Natural Pregnancy Information
Pregnancy is natural. Work with it naturally.
Being pregnant and giving birth are natural life experiences for which a woman’s body is well designed. In most of the world, women labor and give birth with midwives, as they have throughout history. Midwife care has been proven to be a safe, nurturing alternative to physician-attended hospital birth.
A woman’s body is innately prepared with the strength, stamina and ability to nourish a safe and natural pregnancy and childbirth. By supporting the body’s own instinctive knowledge, unnecessary medical intervention can be avoided. Natural pregnancy includes creating an internal and external environment of healthy, positive elements: healthy eating, appropriate exercise, staying adequately hydrated, listening to positive birth stories, gathering knowledge, planning the ideal care, and partnering with a caregiver who can lead you through each step safely and confidently. This caregiver can be a midwife (or a physician who is supportive of natural childbirth).
