verb to assist (a woman) during childbirth.
Origin - "with woman"
Barbara Katz Rothman
The birth of our son. We did not find out the sex with my daughter, nor did we find out the sex of this baby. We are so happy to have a son. I had an all natural water birth. Labor was 4 hours from start to finish. It was very intense but so amazing. The instant bond I have with him is indescribable! My son and I had to work together to get him out. I also loved that I got to deliver him with my own two hands! Just amazing!! I wish more women would consider natural birth. I loved working with the midwives and I felt like I was a person and not just a number. We were a team. This was the best birth experience ever and I could not have asked for more. I feel so empowered by this! I hope you enjoy it!

Women who start pregnancy in a healthy state and make a good plan to stay healthy will typically enjoy a "low risk" pregnancy. When you are low risk, all of your options are open to you.
Countries with the best mama/baby outcomes and the highest maternity care satisfaction, integrate home birth with midwives into their care. In countries such as the Netherlands and Canada, among others, midwives are the primary maternity providers for most women. Physicians are reserved for those whose medical risk requires more medicalized care. Surgeons, or Obs are for the extreme cases that require surgical birth.
There are many studies proving the safety of planned out of hospital births, but the most recent one is out of Canada, and published in December 2015. Here's a quick news brief referencing the study.
I had my first daughter with Mrs Lisa Byrd and I recommend her to anyone and everyone looking for a natural birth. She and her staff were very supportive, helpful and always so great to deal with, and having her there throughout my pregnancy taught me so much, not only about the pregnancy, labor and babies, but also how strong I was. Also, one key thing she taught me was always remain positive and sure enough, I did, and my entire experience was a true blessing and miracle. I look forward to using her again!!!
