From Bump to Baby is passionate about working with families during this very special time, birth impacts the family in a profound way. You will build a foundation upon which life unfolds, learn to identify goals and gain knowledge to guide you through pregnancy, labour and birth.
A woman’s body was designed to give birth naturally and when we trust and respect the natural process, the body responds well providing numerous benefits to both mother and baby. Bringing your child into the world the way nature intended is a safe, satisfying and empowering experience.
With intervention rates in Canada being considerably high, it has become our priority to work with families, reminding them that birth is normal and couples will learn how to be proactive participants in birth.
Note: We focus on providing evidence-based research and do not provide medical advice.
Since childbirth is both a physical and psychological event, women require a holistic approach which takes into consideration, not only their physical needs but their emotional needs as well. Each woman is unique! We all have different needs and desires, whether choosing to give birth in a hospital, at home, with a doctor or midwife; From Bump to Baby will provide you with evidence-based information to guide you on your path to birthing naturally.
The Role of the Partner
All birth partners need to assume the role of “key supporter” and we empower all partners to be equally knowledgeable and passionate about the task at hand. This shared vision combined with dedication, trust and love, increases the likelihood of a more positive birth. Labours with adequate support are shorter, less painful, and require less intervention. When a loved one takes on this awesome responsibility birth becomes an intimate bonding experience unlike no other.
Sometimes Things Don’t Go as Planned
The intention to have a natural birth is a commendable one and is worth striving for however, no matter how well prepared, birth can be unpredictable with plenty of variations. The number one priority along the journey is a healthy mother and healthy baby. Being prepared and working as a team is the key. Couples should be effective communicators, work in partnership with those involved in their birth, familiarize yourselves’ with common obstetrical interventions and ask lots of questions.
