Birth with No Regret is the birth which starts by themselves unless there is any medical prevention, where the natural hormones are actively secreted in the optimum conditions, that are made without any intervention as much as possible, where the babies meet their mothers with uninterrupted Skin-to-Skin contact immediately after birth and where everybody witnessed the birth completed the birth «WITH NO REGRET» whatever is the birth way. It is performed by a team consisting of the doctor, the midwife/doula and birth psychologist.
This birth philosophy has been applied firstly by Istanbul Birth Academy and also welcomed warmly all over the world. It was formed with the belief that “Birth With No Regret” will create a future with no regret.
