Women's bodies have their own wisdom. Our own innate sense of the system and power of birth. We are designed to bring forth life into the world. "Undisturbed natural birth" is safe and efficient for a vast majority of mothers and babies and represents the smoothest hormonal orchestration of the birthing process and therefore the easiest transition possible; physiologically, hormonally, psychologically and emotionally from pregnancy and birth to motherhood and lactation.
Birth the natural way
Ethos and Practice
The midwives of Eden Natural Birth follow and provide the Midwifery Model of Care which is based on the fact that pregnancy and birth are normal life events.
The application of this woman centred model has been proven to reduce the incidence of birth injury, trauma and caesarean section.
The midwife who provides this type of care gains valuable insight and knowledge about each individual woman she works with, her partner, her family, her baby and beliefs, and is able to form an intimate and trusting relationship that will assist in providing every woman with the support that they require throughout labour, birth and early parenting.
The Midwifery Model of Care includes:
Monitoring the physical, psychological and social well being of the mother throughout the child-bearing cycle.
Providing the mother with individualised education, counselling, and prenatal care as well as continuous hands on assistance during labour, delivery and throughout the postpartum phase.
Minimizing technological interventions
Indentifying and referring women who require obstetrical attention.
