What options are available for pain management?
HYPNOBIRTHING & BIRTH EDUCATION:
To start we believe being educated and knowledgeable of the birth process is one of the best methods for pain management. We have seen the best results from moms that practice hypnobirthing during labor & delivery, so we highly recommend this method to eliminate anxieties and fears associated with the birth process. However, hypnobirthing and birthing classes are NOT a requirement and you are free to take any child birth class that works for you.

We believe in the power of warm water. For that reason, we have a large tubs in all of our birth suites that you may labor in and out of. Warm water does wonders during intense labor surges and may help alleviate the sensations of labor.
Our midwives are experts in breathing techniques that can be used to alter your pain & anxiety levels, as well as help you become more relaxed.
NBC&WW midwives are specialist when it comes to positions and techniques to ease pain and increase comfort. Our midwives know different movements, positions, birth stool/ball use, rebozo use, and many other methods to help you have the best and most effective natural birth experience. One of the best coping mechanisms during labor is to get moving.
