We believe in a family centered environment where mother, partner and/or additional support person attend labour under the guidance and care of skilled midwifery staff. We encourage active birth and use of showers and baths, bean bags, exercise ball, floor mats and birthing stool if you choose to use them.
If you have special requests regarding your labour and birth, feel free to discuss them with the midwifery staff or your doctor.
