Birthing Locations

Moms-to-be usually have a number of options as to the environment in which they labor and birth. Many moms-to-be choose a Hospital with a maternity or mother and baby unit - but there are usually other options open to an expectant mom should she wish to have a different experience. Birth centers are facilities specifically designed to be dedicated to supporting the labor and birth experience. Moms-to-be may also opt for a home-birth, with Home-birth support enabling them to labor in the comfort of their own home - often using a Birth Tub. Expectant moms should check with their care team as to which options are open to them, as high-risk pregnancies may have a recommended or mandated set of birthing locations.
