Now that I’ve had a homebirth, I cannot imagine laboring and giving birth any other way! Amy Phoenix cavechange July 19, 2014 at 7:27 am The article is humorous (as well as informative) and I love the comedy video you shared. We chose home birth for various reasons, many listed above. Mostly because we felt it was the overall safest option for our whole family – and we stayed open to making changes if we felt differently at any point during the pregnancy or birth process. Laura Hickman August 3, 2014 at 10:33 pm You’re ten points hit the nail on the head for why we were considering a HB for our second. We had a satisfactory experience in hospital w our first, but the idea if being in my own bedroom, eating food, having an intimate relationship w the person or persons helping to bring this new little of ‘mine’ into the world, and each of the other points made here just felt right. Then we found out we were having twins, and after some more research and God leading us to just the right MW (experienced with twins, breech, neonatal rescucitation certified, etc) it was not only the most appealing choice, but hands down felt like the safest option we had to bring these little men earth side peacefully and on their own time and to keep my health and stress levels high priority. Best decision of my life, truly! If we were to have more children, I can’t imagine NOT being in my own space!
