The mother’s opinion is essential when making decisions about how she wants her birth to be. In recent years, the Hospital Sant Joan de Déu de Martorell Foundation (FHSJDM) has been working intensively to humanize childbirth. “The aim is to help women who want to be mothers to make the best decisions about their birth, to feel listened to and accompanied throughout the process”, points out Leiva.

The involvement of all the professionals of the FHSJDM has been vital and has allowed this step forward, both in the births in the conventional room and in the birth center where the natural birth takes place. This center was launched at the end of 2017 and since then the interest of future mothers has not stopped growing. Hear the experience of professionals and two mothers who took different paths when deciding how they wanted their birth at FHSJDM.
