Conventional hospital births often provide a stagnant experience for a mother. Although extraordinarily popular in most other countries, births either at home or at a birthing center using the services of a midwife and doula are gaining popularity here in the United States for a number of reasons. The cost for pre-natal care and birth is dramatically less expensive than care rendered by a OB and delivery at a hospital, and the outcomes for baby tend to be more favorable in a natural setting instead of one that promotes the use of medications. In this episode of ABCS of Surrogacy, we are pleased to welcome birth doula Renea Capozzi Cotto and midwife Jennifer Stewart, who will both be discussing the option of giving birth at home or at a birth center. Both are practitioners who work in their respective fields in southern California, and each has expertise with preparing mothers to be for a natural delivery either at home or at a birth center. Don't miss this candid discussion on birthing at home or birth center, including the nitty gritty of what it takes to successfully use this option.
