      The greatest Benefit of Choosing a Natural Birth is the Lifelong Gift of Pure Health That You Give Your Baby!

      Why Should I Choose Natural Birth?

      Grow and Birth a Non-Toxic Baby!

      The average newborn has over 287 chemical toxins in her umbilical cord AT BIRTH! Give her the gift of a healthy start to life by significantly reducing the chemicals and meds she's exposed to.

      Fully Connect to Your God-Given Strength!

      God made you strong and your body intuitively knows how to perfectly grow and birth your baby!

      Avoid the Cascade of Medical Intervention!

      Keeping your pregnancy healthy and natural drastically reduces your risk for interventions, including a c-section. Natural pregnancy and birth is God's design!
