My averages over the last 25 years – of 100% of our couples:
 
  • 60% - in-hospital birth - 35%  birth center birth - 05%  home birth

  • 80% - of mothers used no medications 
    20% - of mothers used some medications

  • 92% - delivered vaginally  -  08%  delivered by cesarean


​(check your hospital class' medications-use rate - 80% - 90% is typical)
 

Natural Beginnings’ records show, of our clients with midwife attended births, (whether hospital, home, or birth center) 95% had vaginal births, & 97% of all midwife attended deliveries had no meds for labor or birth. Midwifery care lays the foundation for unmedicated labors & births.

We have found that ‘untrained or uneducated couples’ will often have an increased rate of medication use, and a higher cesarean rate.

Some women plan to use medication, and there is no judgement on any decision an expectant woman makes.  Our focus is on the women who prefer not to use medication, desire to have the necessary skills to cope with the challenges of labor and birth and do want our hands-on training.
