YOUR DOCTOR OR MIDWIFE IS PART OF YOUR BIRTH TEAM.

Open communication with your doctor or midwife is vital when your goal is a natural hospital birth. This requires couples to gain a clear picture of their provider’s “Standard Care,” or the routine procedures and protocols that they use with a typical laboring mom in the hospital.

Ultimately, you will want to do your homework early in your pregnancy to find a doctor or midwife whose “Standard Care” most closely aligns with your own goals. Even after you’ve chosen the ideal provider for you, it’s imperative that you continue to ask questions, frequently share your plans for a low-intervention natural birth, and work to establish a relationship of mutual trust.

Kopa Birth® is here to guide you. Learn what questions to ask about the use of intervention, and how to best convey your plans for a natural birth. You will learn how to communicate effectively with your healthcare providers to work together as a team to bring about your plans for a natural hospital birth.
