Pregnancy Care

Healthy women with uncomplicated pregnancies are eligible to birth their babies at Immanuel Birth Co.. Risk criteria have been established to help determine if you are a good candidate for an out of hospital birth. Some examples of risk factors which would suggest a hospital birth would be a better option for a particular woman are uncontrolled hypertension, insulin dependent diabetes, twins, preterm delivery, placenta previa, breech presentation and previous cesarean section.

Water birth is an option at Immanuel Birth Co. Women, midwives, and doctors acknowledge the analgesic effect of water. Our patients are free to choose the comfort of warm water at any point in their labor and may give birth in one of our large birthing tubs.
