At Mums' Haven, we believe that women are innately prepared for natural birth. We also believe that God gave women the emotional and the physical strength to experience this marvelous and incredible moment of giving birth while being totally awake. Our desire is to help you become educated so that you feel less fear about the natural birth process.
Some of the services we offer to natural birth clients include:
