Just stumbled over this site today
Sure, it’s sponsored by a midwifery organization, so there is a midwifery bias. BUT it’s about approaching your pregnancy and birth from a natural and healthy perspective, birth is another angle of reproductive choice. There are some great sections of this site that ask simple basic questions that can help you determine just how natural a birth would be right for you, and to assess if the care you are receiving from your current provider really meets your needs.
Emphasizing that all those medical interventions may not be the healthiest choice for you or your baby, and that you ultimately are in charge of your baby and your birth. Even if you hand it over to a care provider, it’s still your choice. Once that baby is born, you will have the ultimate responsibility making choices about their care, education, health, diet.. why not start making those choices now. What might seem best for the masses, is not necessarily best for you, or your child. Question everything, especially if it is routine. Find our why they do it, ask about alternatives, and think about whether you think it’s really necessary for your family.
