birth centres

Midwife managed birthing centres offer a more natural 'at-home' style antenatal care, labour and birth. These centres emphasize minimal use of pain-relieving drugs during birth.

Early enrolment is advised at these centres, since places are limited and are only available to low-risk pregnancies.

Birthing centres are usually located near, or within, hospitals, so that those giving birth can have immediate access to any medical need that might arise.
