Imagine giving birth in a place that is specialized in supporting women in healthy birth. Where your care provider will be with you for the duration of your labour, and care for you and your baby post birth as well. A place with a multitude of options for helping your labour progress and pain management including baths, birthing balls, rocking chairs and music. Imagine a tranquil environment where birth is there first and only focus.
Sound too good to be true? Well it is not, you can find these places – Birth Centres – around the world! Supporting women in a healthy birth and decreasing the burden on the healthcare system. In Ontario we do not have birth centres, but that can change!
