Birthing Options Using Dallas MidwivesPosted on May 26th, 2011 by fcmc
Having your baby in our birth center assisted by one of our midwives offers many advantages over a hospital birth. Midwife Dallas offers personalized attention throughout the pregnancy, labor, delivery and postpartum. Prenatal appointment times are long enough to encourage discussion in any areas of concern, and clients are expected to be informed in their care.
Special attention is given to each woman’s personal birth preferences and is given a safe and trusted environment in which to go through labor. We believe that one of the components to keeping women low-risk through their pregnancies is maintaining a consistent trust-based and informed relationship with them so that by the day labor begins, we are all thoroughly familiar with one another.Learn More »
Many women find that the privacy of their own home is the optimal birth environment for the smooth flow of labor progression and reducing exposure to foreign germs (thereby decreasing the chance of infection). They feel completely comfortable there and undistracted by changing locations in the middle of labor or in the postpartum period. Everyone present is an invited guest in their home, and siblings are best able to be as deeply or minimally involved as the mother decides in the moment.Learn More »
Laboring in water has been called by some “the midwife’s epidural” for its dramatic effect on reducing the pain of labor. The more relaxed a woman can stay, the less intense her labor pain as she is able to embrace the contraction surges. The simple act of immersing yourself in a spacious tub of warm water immediately soothes the body, allowing buoyancy and a loss of gravity to assist with labor. Our midwives are experienced in attending water births, both at the birth center and at home births. They encourage women to labor and birth in any location they find comfortable. Speak with one of our midwives about a water birth for your delivery.Learn More »
