Home birth is not for every mother or for every situation. A hospital may be a more appropriate delivery setting for any number of reasons but mothers still need the support and advocacy of a skilled labor assistant. Midwives excel at labor support, and can help a woman birthing in the hospital deliver her baby with a minimum of interventions. We speak
the language of hospital staff, and can explain your options and advocate for your rights. I offer labor support to women planning hospital delivery, as well as clients for whom planned homebirth becomes inappropriate either prenatally or during labor.
