Factors for success
Each and every family that has been under our care at birthvillage (be it ﬁrst time or second time or even fourth time parents) have taken the effort to get educated prenatally through the Lamaze series, have been very regular at their work out classes which has helped in optimal fetal positioning and women being much more ﬁt, strong and conﬁdent for birth!. They have also been willing to explore, and learn about all their options. They have also taken responsibility for their care and their pregnancies. We also strongly believe in the importance and value of having a positive birth experience where we can clearly observe and state that the woman’s partner be it her friend/ doula/husband have made a huge impact in having not just a natural birth but a truly empowering one where she gets to make choices and decisions and complete freedom. We are blessed to be a part of team that stands for the true essence of midwifery which means with woman’s. A big thank you to all the families that have helped us to stand where we are today. We wouldn’t have made it this far without your support, commitment and kindness.
*The ﬁgures are inclusive of women and their families who chose to birth at other health care institutions.
