Our experienced labor and delivery nurses are here to help you prepare for a natural, low-intervention birth that promotes your comfort and supports your connection to your partner and baby.

We also will discuss how to communicate your preferences to your care team. We’ll provide you with third trimester practices for you and your partner to try to ease common discomforts. While we do not cover epidurals in-depth, we do discuss scenarios that may occur during your birthing experience and what to expect, including unscheduled C-sections.
