- We believe that
childbirth is a normal, natural physiological process perfectly designed by
nature to bring babies gently into the world.
- We believe that birth is
an amazing, beautiful, transformative moment in life which affects the woman,
her partner and her family.
- We believe that birth is a
special moment that will be remembered forever.
- We believe that the
experience of childbirth can have a profound effect on a woman's long term
physical and emotional wellbeing.
- We believe that women who
are adequately prepared are innately able to give birth without routine medical
- We believe that women
should have as much control as possible in determining their care, and should
be encouraged to be active participants in decision-making.
- We believe that the birth
experience is enhanced by having a woman's partner trained to offer support -
physically, mentally and emotionally.
Our vision is to empower birth partners to access
learning and support to enable them to provide emotional and physical support
during pregnancy, labour, birth and parenthood.
