Home Birth in Trinidad and Tobago

Home Birth in Trinidad and Tobago

Birth is a normal physiological event. But in Trinidad and Tobago, as in much of the world, we find unnecessary medical interventions creeping into healthy deliveries. Homebirth is available in TT for low-risk mothers, though most families don’t know about this option. At home, a mother is free to labour and deliver however she chooses with a midwife and loved ones to support her. The baby goes on the mother’s chest right away instead of into an incubator. And when it’s all over, the family rests in their own home, supported by the midwives who come back to check on them. What a difference from delivering in a hospital!
