No matter what your ideal birth looks like, there are fewer things that will rob a new
mother-to-be of her confidence than an unsupportive care provider.
At Motherled, we believe in shattering the status quo of "Do as your told".
We believe in Motherled Care!
We believe in your right to make choices.
We do not subscribe to the idea that women lose all body autonomy at pregnancy. This is your body, your baby, and your birth. You deserve to have a say.
You deserve Motherled Care.
To you, powerful mama we dedicate our
Motherled Care Manifesto
1. Care is best provided by a team, of which the woman is the leader.
In order to make the best choices for your family, you will gather a team that will help you gather the information needed to make a well-informed decision. YOU retain control of decision-making and can consult with additional providers if needed.
2. The provider’s role is to provide balanced, evidence-based information.
Rather than resort to fear tactics, your care provider can provide balanced, evidence-based information to help you make the best choice for YOUR family. A supportive provider acknowledges that they do not know the best choice for you as every woman, family, and situation is unique.
3. You should be trusted and supported when making educated decisions about your care.
When a decision is made about your pregnancy, birth, or any aspect of you care, it should be met with respect and understanding. A supportive care provider understands they don’t know what is best for each client but we can be a supportive guide on her path.
4. Care can be empowering and provided with kindness.
When you receive Motherled Care, you allow a relationship of trust to develop that brings about honest questions and honest answers. How better to empower your relationship with your provider than by having authentic interactions? Motherled care is given when a provider refrains from judgement and being critical and simply cares about YOU as an individual and allows compassion to saturate all aspects of care.
It should not be a radical idea that women receive, not only humane treatment, but supportive, sympathetic support and care during their pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. Maybe 2018 is the year. We have seen the power women hold when we rise up together and demand change. That is what the Motherled Care Manifesto does. We demand that women are treated with respect in their care. We require options & support in our choices.
