Mercy's Natural Birth Guide

The birth experience does not necessarily mean being attached to a monitor, getting an epidural and lying flat on your back. There is an option to have a more natural experience. Think queen-sized beds and a warm, homey feel. Think walking around, soaking in a jet tub and eating while in labor.

If you're considering low-intervention birth, Mercy's guide can help you decide what's right for you. Our guide includes, but is not limited to:

  • Finding a midwife or physician to provide adequate safety and support
  • The labor and birthing process
  • Safety for mom and baby
  • Preparing your mind and body for childbirth and more

Mercy’s leading OB/GYN physicians provide personalized prenatal care for you and your child. You both have special needs that deserve special attention. Visits with your Mercy physician will consist of ultrasounds, regular screenings and heartbeat monitoring to give you peace of mind as your baby grows. We’ll answer your questions, address your concerns and connect you to resources within Mercy to help you and your family prepare for your new addition.
