A Midwife Hospital Birth
Having a home-like birth in hospital where you’ll be looked after by the Tender Loving Childbirth midwife throughout labour and birth, although obstetricians are on hand to help if their expertise is needed.

Home Birth
Giving birth at home allows you to labour and deliver in familiar and comfortable
surroundings. You’ll have more control over your birth experience than you would in
a hospital, and you won’t have to endure routine medical interventions.
Giving birth at TLC Home Birthing Centre which is regarded as a HOME BIRTH and
the qualifying criteria for a home birth will apply which allows you to labour and
deliver in comfortable,serene surroundings birthing at home is not an option.

Water Births
Labouring and giving birth in a warm tub has become more acceptable as a way
to cope with pain during labour and delivery of your infant, whether at home or in
hospital. It’s important to decide in advance what tub you’ll be delivering in.

You can use your bathtub if it’s big enough, but most women either buy or rent
a special birthing pool. At TLC Home Birthing Centre the water birth option is in a
Jacuzzi birthing pool with regulated temperatures.

"Giving birth is not just about the place, it's about how you manage and
cope with the experience"
