Attends hospital births? All Hospitals
Their are definitely friendlier hospitals (pro-normal) to choices made by Families and more Evidence Based/Mother Centered and VBAC services-this is true for care providers as well:) Some are Baby Friendly certified. I do not discriminate on couples or their choices.I serve natural and medicated choices for birthing including cesarean.I have served over 1600 Birth Families, over 140 providers in 21 hospitals, 18 midwives, 6 Birth Centers in North Texas.

Attends birth center births? All Birth Centers
I love a pro-normal birth atmosphere:) and the Midwifery Model of Care.
