Natural Birth with a Homebirth Midwife

There is a fear about natural birth in general. Is it painful? Can I handle it? Will something go wrong? There is also a fear of women in general. This is evident due to: differential pay, depicting women as weak in film, and showing the birth of human life as gross, scary, and unsafe.
Bringing into the world a new soul that can think, learn, love, and create amazing things is done by a woman. She also knows how to feed that amazing soul with just her breasts and if that being becomes sick, she has some instinctual knowledge handed down from her for-mothers that can remedy the ailment.

-handmade (not a family selling large corporate products, rather a skilled person who’s making something or doing something)
-local (our sellers will be people in your community, tho…

Our co-op started with the need to educated women on the beauty and benefits of natural birth. When our midwife saw that many women were not aware of how normal the birth process is, and how well it flows when a women is in control of her environment, she realized she needed to make them aware. It became extremely important for her that women and families know that birth, parenting, and our health is something we need to take into our hands with proper guidance and education. Going through the amazing natural birth journey with all of the powerful families, she saw that many wanted natural care there after. This is when our midwife decided to create a co-op of birthworkers who could join together as a stronger front to empower and educate our community on the benefits of holistic c…
