The Safety of Home Birth
Posted by Sandra on July 9, 2009
Hat tip to Kimberly Spencer, CPM, for this information!
I can honestly say I have only two regrets in my experiences as a mother. I regret weaning (from breastfeeding) any of my children before the age of at least two years old; and I regret ever wasting the gas to drive to a worthless hospital to have my babies. Granted, I managed to have intervention-free natural childbirths, but it’s simply not the same. And paying someone $5,000 for the use of a room and a set of sheets for a whopping four hours is ridiculous.
If God were, by some glorious wonderful miracle, grant me baby #5 (which hubby says won’t happen, and I’m having a very hard time dealing with that!), there is no way, no how I will leave the safety of my home. I will have an unassisted homebirth or there may be a slight chance of having a midwife here. I really really regret not experiencing a lovely, calm, beautiful birth safe and sound in my own environment with my family beside me.
