Vaginal births

If you plan to have a vaginal birth, there are a variety of childbirth options available, so be sure to talk to your health care provider to decide what is right for you. 

Doula births

A doula is specially trained to guide you through labor with relaxation and breathing exercises, massage, words of encouragement and other comforting measures. A doula can also work with your spouse or support person to encourage involvement and to create a warm and positive experience.
