For women experiencing healthy pregnancies, birth is a normal process. In most cases, the birthing process can be managed safely without a need for medical intervention. Unfortunately, many women think they have to give birth in hospitals with the assistance of many medications, some of which can be harmful to either mother or child, or both. Too often, expectant families don’t understand that they have options, and they can choose where to have their child. That is where Barefoot Birth comes in.

Sometimes, the best choice is to have the child at home, or to schedule a natural birth in a hospital. The overall mission of Barefoot Birth is to make sure expectant families have all of the special, personalized services they need in order to meet their constantly changing needs. Their practice of midwifery combines tradition and science to use a low-tech approach to the birthing process, hopefully bringing about better outcomes for both mother and child.
