Healthy Moms and Healthy Babies

While I am a firm believer in the ability of the female body to give birth naturally, I believe with equal sincerity that the birthing process is greatly impacted by the emotional well-being of the mother. What constitutes an ideal laboring environment is not going to be the same for every person! One woman may feel safe and protected in a hospital, while another feels threatened and insecure. With the goal of a healthy mom and a healthy baby in mind, the key is to find the best path for each individual to reach that end.
