A birth keeper is usually a person who has studied at a deeper level to have a true understanding of natural, physiological birth. While a birth keeper does not offer any clinical care they will be able to support women to make informed choices that are right for them. Birth keepers often have an awareness of many holistic modalities and alternative therapies. A birth keeper will empower women and their families to take control of their birthing journey.
They will be able to provide non biased evidence and information to assist in informed decision making. They will act as an advocate for women’s wants, wishes and desires and protect her birthing environment.
