Otero Birth, Your Obstetrics Alternative in Roswell, New Mexico and Surrounding Areas
The birth of a child is a sacred, monumental event that is life changing for all involved, especially the mother. It is our hope that all women have an opportunity to feel secure, nurtured, and supported during the special time leading up to and during their baby’s birth.
At Otero Birth we strive to empower women to trust their bodies, help husbands feel secure in supporting their wives, bring calm and peace to the birth setting, facilitate healing from previous birth experiences when needed, and support the family in their birth choices.
The human body is magnificently designed and functions quite well in normal circumstances. A woman's body is no different. Just as her body is made to carry out day to day functions such as breathing, digesting food, circulating blood, so is it also innately designed for pregnancy and birth. Pregnancy and birth are both natural functions of the human body. When a woman works with her bodies innate designs she finds that pregnancy and birth can be a fulfilling time of great health, growth, and joy.
Throughout history and all over the world today, women have been nurtured by, cared for by and birthed with midwives. Midwives have been proven to not only be a safe alternative to care from a physician, but women have found increased satisfaction and confidence when cared for by a midwife.
Here at Otero Birth our midwife is an experienced professional in prenatal and childbirth care. We offer alternatives to OBGYN care, giving women options for personal, private prenatal care. As guides we provide the compassionate help and support you're looking for, whether you are trying to conceive or are exploring your options for childbirth.
When a woman works with her body's natural design for pregnancy and birth, often medical intervention is able to be avoided. What a fulfilling thing it can be to trust your body to carry out such a life changing, amazing task, as she works with it naturally. Working with her body naturally can include a healthy diet and activity level, mental and emotional preparation and support from her care provider.
Pregnancy and birth are at once both times of great strength and also great vulnerability for the woman. Many women find themselves naturally wanting to bond with their care giver and feel cared for by them. It can be upsetting that at the time of their labor and birth of their child their provider is only seen for brief moments, and that many of their appointments are spent waiting lengthy amounts of time only to spend moments with their doctor.
This is another area where women find care with a midwife to be more highly desired than that of an obstetrician in a healthy, normal pregnancy. An average appointment with our midwife is an hour in length, with no wait time and plenty of time to discuss needs and concerns and get to know each other. As the mother enters active labor, the midwife comes and stays with her throughout the Labor and birth process.
Care with a modern midwife is truly an art form - combining the guiding, healing hands of one's most trusted advisor and nurturer with today's knowledge, science and medicine. This fusion is what sets midwives apart from most doctors. The modern midwife blends current knowledge and practices with ancient wisdom passed down through the generations.
