Have you decided to give birth in a hospital? Then you want to make sure that you and your baby can both count on the best medical care – even in the event of complications. A hospital is often the best place to treat complications that may arise during or after the birth.
An alternative to a conventional hospital birth is to have an independent midwife. Some hospitals have contracts in place with these independent midwives and allow them to handle the entire birthing process from start to finish. You still give birth to your baby in the hospital where all of the necessary medical equipment is available if needed, but the atmosphere is far more personal like it would be in a birth centre.
Would you like to have your own personal midwife by your side? Then be sure to get in touch with an on-call midwife service shortly before the birth.
