The Midwife Collective is honoured, to offer our services to assist you in your choice of homebirth.
We can use our experience and knowledge to help and guide you. Our intention is to help you to have a safe, positive birth experience.
During your pregnancy you have shared valuable time (and many cups of tea!) with your midwives, getting to know and trust each other, making sure we understand each other and ensuring that families are prepared for homebirth.
We provide valuable experience. We know that pregnancy and birth are a natural part of life and we remain vigilant for variations from the normal.
When it is time, we wait while each labour achieves its own rhythm, in this woman’s own individual way.
Each birth teaches us something new, and more and more deeply, we realise that women can birth and our job is to hold the space, to recognise the broad range of normal, to support parents, as labour builds towards and through the climax of birth. Couples working together have a powerful and unique opportunity, to experience the love, support and courage of their partner.
Meanwhile, we see women labour and birth, secure with the person they love the most, supported by midwives they know and trust, and babies born into the welcoming of arms of their mother, all within an atmosphere of love, courage, respect and joy.
