Isn't the hospital, nursing staff, obstetrician, etc good enough?

 

Not necessarily. In order to have a positive birth experience, most women need continuous labor support. Obstetrical nurses, for example, are experienced in dealing with a laboring woman's emotional and physical needs, they can seldom guarantee the support that they provide will last throughout the labor because they are of necessity burdened with various other responsibilities - especially in hospital settings where shift changes, meal breaks, heavy paperwork and busy nights regularly occur. In addition, the labor process itself often extends over a period of hours. Some OB nurses handle up to six laboring couples at a time. Midwives may be able to offer more labor support, but they too have clinical duties to which they must attend.
