Put Your Mental Health First: During Pregnancy and Postpartum10/10/2023
Bringing a new life into the world is an awe-inspiring and transformative experience. For many expectant parents, choosing the right birthing environment is a significant decision. While hospitals have traditionally been the go-to option, an increasing number of families are considering alternative options, such as Origins Birth and Wellness Collective. Our birth centers offer a unique approach to childbirth. We combine the nurturing environment of a birth center with the expertise and personalized care of midwives.
Understanding Origins Birth Centers and Midwifery Care:
Origins birth centers are designed to provide a supportive environment that encourages a woman’s innate ability to give birth. They promote a more natural and low-intervention approach to childbirth, emphasizing the physiological, emotional, and spiritual aspects of the process. Unlike hospitals, our birth centers create a home-like setting that empowers women and respects their birthing choices. At the heart of Origins is the presence of highly skilled midwives who provide personalized and woman-centered care throughout the pregnancy, childbirth, and postpartum journey.
Key Considerations for Your Birth Decision:
Desire for a Natural Birth Experience
If you are committed to a natural birth experience, a birth center is an excellent fit. Origins Birth and Wellness Collective prioritizes unmedicated labor and childbirth, offering various pain management techniques such as water immersion, massage, breathing techniques, and other alternative therapies. The presence of midwives ensures that you have experienced professionals by your side. They provide guidance, offer support, and monitor your progress throughout labor.
Personalized and Family-Centered Care
Origins supplies personalized care and a more intimate environment compared to hospitals. Your midwives work closely with expectant parents to understand their unique needs, preferences, and birth plans. They build strong relationships, fostering trust and actively involving families in decision-making. This approach creates a sense of connection and continuity of care. We also encourage family involvement, enabling partners and family members to actively take part in the birthing process.
Safety and Emergency Preparedness:
While Origins promotes natural childbirth, we prioritize the safety and well-being of mother and baby. Midwives are highly trained professionals with expertise in normal, low-risk pregnancies and childbirth. Origins midwives closely monitor the progress of labor and have protocols in place to address any unforeseen complications. Additionally, Origins has established relationships with nearby hospitals and healthcare providers, ensuring a smooth transfer in case of the need for medical interventions.
Postpartum Care and Continuity:
One of the advantages of Origins birth centers is the emphasis on comprehensive postpartum care. Our midwives offer extended postpartum support, including lactation consultation, newborn care education, emotional support, and guidance on transitioning to parenthood. They provide continuity of care, building on the relationship established during pregnancy and childbirth.
Insurance Coverage and Financial Considerations:
It’s important to consider the financial aspect of choosing a birth center. Origins Birth and Wellness Collective is currently in-network with Cigna and United Healthcare, although your coverage will be specific to your plan. We also have reasonable out-of-pocket rates for those that do not have accepted insurance plans or no maternity coverage at all. Many times, our out-of-pocket rates are less expensive than what your financial responsibility would be with utilizing other insurance carriers. At Origins, we will take you through each step of finding out what your costs with us will be!
Why Choose Origins Birth and Wellness Collective?
Deciding on the right birth environment is a deeply personal choice. A holistic birth center with midwifery care, such as Origins Birth and Wellness Center, offers a unique combination of a nurturing environment, natural childbirth philosophy, personalized care, and expertise from midwives.
