This is wonderful! After my home birth with Aaliyah, I have definitely become a midwife advocate. How can I explain how amazing it was to have someone walk through all of labor and delivery focused on the needs of baby and I? I'll admit, I had to deal with quite a few questions of the safety of a midwife, but I'm convinced they know what they are doing and know when to transfer, if necessary. It also helped a lot to inform myself about the different facets of birth and what to expect. I'd recommend a midwife to any pregnant woman looking at her options!
Me, too! I didn't know you had a home birth! That's awesome!!! :-)
They took the video down!
I plan to have another one with this baby, but it's a pain to find since Alaska laws are stricter than Washington's! I HAVE found a travelling midwife who has been practicing for 30 years willing to assist me.
