Meet Coral Slavin,
Owner & Director of Well-Rounded Maternity Center
Coral is the owner and director of the Well-Rounded Maternity Center. She is on the board and former chair for the Childbirth Assistance, Recources and Education (C.A.R.E. Network) of Wisconsin – a membership and referral organization of birth professionals dedicated to helping women and their families have safe and satisfying births.
Coral is married to husband Jim. She has three children. Robert, the oldest was born in a hospital. Ruth was born in a free-standing birth center and Michael was born at home. As a birth professional and a mother, she knows the pros and cons of birth in all three settings.
Coral has a doctorate in health education, and has, at one time, been certified as a Bradley Childbirth Educator; both an ICEA and DONA Doula, an ACE Prenatal Fitness/Yoga Instructor, and a Stress Management Counselor and hypnotherapist. She has been a doula and childbirth educator for over 19 years and has attended nearly 500 births locally, in all types of settings.*
As a doula, Coral is dedicated to helping parents-to-be make the choices that are right for them. She understands well the pros and cons of the decisions parents face regarding birth place, care-providers, and interventions.
“I believe that childbirth is a normal, instinctive process that integrates body, mind, and spirit. It is not an illness requiring treatment or routine intervention. Women planning on birthing in a hospital most often say that they fear losing control of their birth experience. Yet, to labor most effectively, it is this very control that they must surrender, allowing the natural process to flow. They are able to let go when they have faith in their own bodies, and in their caregivers. Women are capable of giving birth naturally if they have the commitment, knowledge, and support to do so.”
