At the time of birth, about 95% of clients are breastfeeding their babies.
Going through labour can be the most empowering but challenging process a person can experience. Rarely is labour predictable, and there is no such thing as a “text book” labour. I like to explain to clients that labour is “the most important thing that you have the least amount of control over.” But in the midst of the uncertainty, having a person by your side providing labour support can feel like a lifeline.
Happy International Midwives Day!
Since it is International Midwives Day I am unashamedly going to toot our own horn, and tell you what I love about midwives and what we do.
