I hate hospitals and would rather not go to one?
Hospitals exist to provide emergency care and other services. They are staffed with trained professionals who can provide immediate care for almost any procedure and are open 24 hours a day, every day. The problem that a lot of woman have is the hospital setting is not the most relaxed, helpful setting for labor and birth (hospitals during can slow down and even complicate a labor). Also, hospital-based methodologies differ from Spirit of Life Traditional Midwifery’s in the respect that we believe pregnancy, labor and birth are joyous occasions that do not fit one particular method and should be catered to the needs of the individual. We only go to the hospital if we need to. There is a list of stated reasons for transfer to hospital and we will review the list with you.
Spirit of Life Traditional Midwifery offers a full range of support for home birth, in fact we are an independent homebirth practice.
