4 Steps to a Healthy Birth
July 22nd, 2020
Posted in: Treatment Areas
Did you know… with all of the advances in medical science, modern maternity management don’t seem very evidence-based.
The natural birth process is designed to be relatively simple – it’s been going on for thousands of years! The use of intravenous lines, continuous monitoring, and restricted movement can often make labour more difficult by increasing stress and interfering with the natural process.
Why It Matters
Knowing this, the World Health Organisation (WHO) recommends 4 care practices that promote, support and protect a normal birth process: let labour begin on its own, move and change positions during labour, bring a loved one or doula for support, and avoid interventions that aren’t necessary.
Welcoming a child is a special event, and no one decision should be taken lightly. It’s essential to understand and respect the body’s natural ability to navigate the process. Our practice is proud to work with a variety of midwives, doulas, and obstetricians in our community. Together, we can help create a better birth experience and make it as comfortable as possible!
