A growing number of expectant mothers are choosing to forego both hospital and alternative facility deliveries in favor of birthing their babies in the comfort of their own homes.
While there is still some stigma of fear that surrounds giving birth at home, modern advances in medical discoveries and information have made home delivery perfectly safe, providing there has been proper prenatal care and adequate planning.
Our caregivers are more capable than ever before when it comes to identifying any potential issues that may require extra attention so as not to result in complications for the mother or the child.
Benefits of Home Birthing
The most significant benefit of delivering your child at home is the level of comfort of the mother. Regardless of the ambiance of a strange setting, in nearly every instance the mother is going to feel more at ease in familiar surroundings as she gives birth. The comfort of the mother is paramount in ensuring easy, problem-free labor and delivery.
Laboring and giving birth at home also eliminates the need for the mother, and potentially other family members, to leave the home and be transported elsewhere once labor begins. Everything will already be in place and a plan ready to be put into action at the first contraction. Your caregiver will arrive as arranged and the birthing process can get underway smoothly.
This birthing option also provides more privacy than a hospital delivery. The family will have developed a relationship with the care team who will be delivering the child rather than encountering numerous hospital personnel throughout a birthing process there. The hospital workers will be providing care to any number of patients at the same time, whereas labor, delivery, and postpartum care at home allows the midwife to focus solely on one mother, one child, one birthing experience.
Fully Trained and Licensed Midwives
The caregivers at Family Birth Services are fully trained and licensed by the state of Texas. They are Certified Professionals via The North American Registry of Midwives (NARM). They are trained to carry out the duties of a doula as needed, remaining with the other from the onset of labor and acting as emotional support as well as performing traditional duties. Further, they are trained to handle the most common labor and delivery issues themselves.
Should more in-depth medical care be required for the safety of the mother or child, the caregiver will accompany the mother to the hospital and continue to assist however she may. She is also trained to assist in home water births, aromatherapy and hydrotherapy births, and the other unique delivery options offered as part of our birthing services.
