Obstetric Care

Natural Labor

Having a baby is one of life’s momentous experiences. Each pregnancy is always a new experience and no two childbirths are the same. With each new baby, you become a new parent once again.

Pregnancy can be an exciting, fulfilling and delightful time. But it can also be a time of uncertainty and change. Everything seems to be changing. However, do not let the unknown experience of pregnancy and vaginal childbirth cause you fear. We can help you feel comfortable and calm. As a team, we will work together to make your pregnancy as healthy and as enjoyable as possible.

The Gentle Cesarean:  A new option for Moms-to-Be

Independence Women’s Clinic is now happy to offer Moms-to-be a new option called a family-centered cesarean, or “gentle-C”.  In an effort to include mom in the delivery as much as possible, we can switch the solid drape for a clear drape just before delivery and allow mom to see her baby being born.  We can also give mom a free arm so that she is able to hold, interact and provide skin-to-skin contact with her baby in the moments following the birth.

Allowing mom and baby to bond as quickly as possible after the delivery makes for a better transition for the baby, including better temperature and heart rate regulation, increased attachment and parental bonding and more successful rates of breast feeding.
