Why would you choose a midwife Center birth, or a homebirth, instead of a hospital birth?
Silvia Casabianca interviews Cheryl Bernardi about natural childbirth. A LMT, Yoga instructor and Birth Doula, Bernardi dicusses how natural birthing methods are safe, serene and effective.
As a doula she speaks about the comfortable, protected and non-distracted setting she can create for the expectant parents and how she can accompany you exclusively throughout the whole birth process.
"That allows the women (and couple) to relax, release and open to help the baby to descend.
Physical, emotional, mental, and even spiritual levels are integrated for a harmonious birth process," she says.
"Giving birth to a child, is one of the most memorable experiences in a woman's life," Bernardi adds. The doula offers insights and information on how to prepare naturally and holistically for the birth of your baby.
She also offers insight on prenatal care, nutrition during pregnancy, exercise, midwifery, advantages of doula care during labor, natural and effective methods for pain management, water births, breastfeeding, and effects of skin-to-skin contact with baby.
Licensed Midwife Dawn Meier joins the conversation also.
