Acupuncture, reflexology and holistic medicine in a delivery room?
This is actually common in Israeli hospitals, including at Hadassah Hospital Mount Scopus. In addition to the tailored care of midwives, who run the delivery room, and doctors during the childbirth process, women have the added benefit of receiving these treatments.
Tune in to the season five opener of the Hadassah On Call podcast to hear Elisheva Levine, head midwife at the Rady Mother and Child Center, and Dr. Lorinne Levitt, head of the Maternal Fetal Medicine Unit and founder and head of the Corrective Birth Experience Clinic, discuss their approach to childbirth for low-risk physiological deliveries and for women experiencing trauma. At Hadassah Mt. Scopus, the goal is always to have a healthy woman deliver a healthy baby.
