Thinking of having a home birth?
Many mothers are opting for a home birth due to the calm, comfortable, and familiar environment birthing at home provides. When in a calm and familiar environment research shows that your labour is more likely to progress smoothly, your oxytocin levels will remain nice and high, your level of relaxation will be optimal because you feel safe and secure.
When we enter a new space such as transitioning to the hospital this can sometimes disrupt our labour which can cause surges to slow down. Even though you may be relieved to have arrived in the hands of a midwife your subconscious knows it’s an unfamiliar environment.
