natural birthing/waterbirths in Lyon?


Recommended Posts

 Hi everyone,

I'm new here. I'm an american currently living in Italy with my French husband.

We are due to have our first baby in March and are moving to Lyon in January.

I hear there are no birth centers in France, but all births are done at the hospital. My question is, where can I find a hospital with the most natural methods practiced and preferrably water birthing available? I'm also looking for rooming-in,  and freedom of movement during labor and any other natural methods where medicinal pain relief is not pushed (though if it's available that's great too) I'm a little nervous about this cuz it took us sooo long to find the information on giving birth in Italy and now we will be in France after finding a wonderful clinic right here.

Thanks for any info!!

Hi Cherie I live in Lyon but as my baby days are over, have no idea if this is available, but I suggest that you contact the American Club in Lyon. http://www.americanclublyon.org/American_Club_of_Lyon_Web_2.0/Home.html

if you get nowhere, ask again or send me a PM and I'll see if I can dig out an American friend/acquaintance who might help

I hope you like Lyon when you get here. if you need any help, just ask
