Homebirth Midwives in Albuquerque


There are so many different options for where to birth your baby, but so many people forget that birthing your baby in the comfort of your own home is an option as well. Homebirth offers many benefits to both mother and baby. There is no place more comfortable than your own home. It gives you and your partner more control, gives you highly individualized care, and there will be no pressure for a medicated birth.

Homebirth is also a great option if you have had previous quick births. There are reduced costs associated with homebirth. This also offers you more opportunity for maximum skin-to-skin contact after birth, as well as higher rates of exclusive breastfeeding.
