Being with Loved Ones
When women are supported and cared for, they are able to relax and follow their instincts confidently. At home, loved ones can be involved in the birth process. Whether it’s a partner, a sister, or a friend, it’s easiest for them to offer support when they feel comfortable and at ease in their environment. Everyone involved can follow their natural rhythms and have easy access to good drinking water, comfortable beds and good wholesome food from your own kitchen. If you have older children, they can be in a familiar place and are able to come and go as they please. We often tend to a delivery when the older siblings are sleeping and see the precious look of delight when they wake up to find their newly born brother or sister in their home.
