She recently had her intended homebirth....SO QUICKLY! Just 20 minutes before the little one came earthside, she was smiling and laughing as her youngest daughter danced around and played with the home birth supplies.
I asked her what drew her to homebirth, and this is what she said:
"I wanted a more intimate and comfortable experience.
I wanted to have choices and things go my way, instead of a doctor choosing how I was going to deliver or clamping her cord asap.
I wanted to be in my own home instead of at a hospital away from my other children.
I wanted to be able to sleep on my own bed and be comfortable without an IV hooked to me, or nurses coming in and out of our room bugging us constantly.
It was MY birth plan instead of a doctors/hospitals." DB, age 27, mother of 4
It was an honor to be your midwives! You are a strong, determined, and loving mother! Love, Cindi and Tiffany
