Extract from The BirthRite Experience

For most women, having a baby will be the most amazing experience they have in life. Whether the “amazing” is great, downright awful or somewhere in between, will largely depend on how well the birthing woman is prepared and on the choices she and her partner make.

At BirthRite, we believe that every woman, baby and partner should have the opportunity for a wonderful and safe birth that is memorable for all the right reasons. To this end, we advocate an holistic approach that involves midwives in all aspects of childbirth and parenting, from early in pregnancy right through to birth and beyond. BirthRite is dedicated to providing parents and midwives with the tools — physical, intellectual and emotional — that enhance not only the actual birth but also the whole family experience thereafter.

BirthRite’s products and workshops are specifically designed to facilitate:–

  • Natural, safe and gentle childbirth
  • Sound preparation for birthing and parenting
  • Increased professional satisfaction for midwives.

The University of Missouri is one of the pioneers in effecting change from highly medicalized obstetrics towards a more holistic and natural approach to pregnancy and childbirth. BirthRite Floor Studios have been chosen for the fitting-out of the new low-intervention birthing facility at University of Missouri Women’s and Children’s Hospital in Columbia, Missouri, USA.

The Alongside Midwifery Unit (AMU) at Markham Stouffville Hospital in Ontario, Canada, offers state-of-the-art birthing rooms for midwife-led support of normal births, with convenient access to a separate obstetric unit as required. The BirthRite Floor Studio is an integral part of the AMU’s holistic approach to childbirth.

“In a nutshell, our five BirthRite Floor Studios are well used on our unit and loved by clients and midwives.”

“There is no good reason why holistic midwifery cannot be mainstream and why mainstream midwifery cannot be holistic.”
