Here at the UK Birth Centres we are always looking to support women’s choice. We have a holistic approach which puts the focus on each woman as an individual. We know that by keying in to what will help them feel relaxed and more confident when it comes to giving birth is certainly worth pursuing and it is why many of our clients choose a home birth.
Exposure to midwifery practice where the midwife is fulfilling her role allowed me personally to regain myself as a practitioner – focussing on the important elements of practice and skill; adapt to the environment (what is actually essential?); accept criticism and praise; be taught and teach; assume credibility as a practitioner with renewed belief in the central role and importance of the midwife.
