Tips for A Safe and Healthy Birth

I’m often asked for any tips for a safe and healthy birth. The list and advice could be long! But in 6 short and simple tips, this is from LaMaze.

**Let labor begin on its own
**Walk, move around and change positions throughout labor
Bring a loved one, friend or doula for continuous support
**Avoid interventions that are not medically necessary
**Avoid giving birth on your back and follow your body’s urges to push
**Keep mother and baby together — it’s best for mother, baby and breastfeeding

Sounds simple…..but can be difficult, especially without the support and help from an experienced doula.
