OUR PHILOSOPHY

 

We believe childbirth to be a normal physiological process that has been perfectly designed by nature to bring babies into the world. It is a primal experience that has its own rhythm and pace that should be respected and honoured, which works best when interfered with as little as possible.

We believe that women should have as much control as possible when determining their care, and should be encouraged to actively participate in decision making. When informed, supported and encouraged to follow their instincts, women are able to be active givers of birth rather than passive receivers of birth technology. Women who take responsibility for their birth journey and give birth to their babies under their own power, emerge from the experience empowered, with a new sense of their own capabilities.

Midwifery is both an art and a science. The science of midwifery overlaps with other disciplines such as medicine and nursing and involves knowing how and when to intervene to promote safety. Yours and your baby's safety is our priority.
