We're in the middle of a home birth revival. Now more than ever, families are choosing to birth outside of the institution of a hospital, looking for real autonomy during one of the most sacred and profound rites of passages in life - childbirth. Giving birth is simultaneously the most ordinary and extraordinary process one will ever go through. Since the dawn of time, women have been giving birth naturally at home with the support and guidance of midiwives. In current times, midwifery is practiced as a hybrid of traditional medicine with contemporary medicine, combining the best of both worlds. In choosing midwifery care, families are receiving high quality maternity care in the comfort of their homes, keeping their pregnancy and birth experience a family-centered affair. We're seeing more and more families choose this modern form of midwifery care which facilitates undisturbed, physiologic birth in a safe and supportive way.
