Tips from a Midwife

Check out my post from my homebirth website. I thought you all would enjoy some tips on getting that birth you want and deserve!

How do I get the birth I want?


Most families find Peaceful Pregnancy Pathways because they have a good understanding of why pregnancy is natural to the women's body and finding a provider who is trained in nurturing that is essential! Here are some of my favorite picks that I has found to compliment Midwifery Care and encourage families to achieve the bliss of birth:


-Find a Midwife! Low-risk women have better birth outcomes when cared for by a Licensed, Certified Professional Midwife


-Get a Doula! If you do not know what a doula is, learn it, love it, and GET ONE!


-Educate yourself! Learn from a Midwife how very different each birth is and why the patience and autonomy of a Midwife allows for each body to do it's labor flow in a...

Birth, yes you can!

No matter your location you CAN birth a baby. Sure our birth paths can change and sometimes issues can present but remember our bodies, anatomically speaking, are built to birth. How can we foster and restore that primitive skill? Tap into it!

Birth is a natural process of life

Birth is normal and birth is natural. REPEAT. Birth is normal and birth is natural. We have to start reminded ourselves of this because lately, it seems we've forgotten. The increase in c/sections, epidurals, NICU visits, and early inductions would make us think somehow we don't know how to do this without someone stepping in and intervening.

It's because women are being told it isn't safe and what if something happens. Well what if something happens? Are you to be shunned for believing in the very natural process we were built for? NO! 

Few things: #1 THINGS HAPPEN! It's also a natural process. Luckily for skills handed down to Midwives AND modern technology and knowledge we get to step in only when necessary and address the issue.

#2 THATS WHY YOU HIRE A PROFESSIONAL! Midwives are professionals at their trade, as are OB's in...
