I believe in a woman’s ability to birth her baby. I believe natural, unmedicated b_DSC0175irth is the best way for babies to be brought into the world. At the same time, I also believe that interventions can be tools to assist a laboring woman in her birth experience. I believe women and their partners have the right to have all the information, including possible risks, when making decisions regarding their maternity care. I believe the woman’s partner has an important role in birth, just as they share the co-parenting responsibility after birth.
