"Home Birth" - for centuries giving birth at home was the norm. As our understanding of anatomy, medicine, mechanics' of childbirth, & technology increase, more women are considering home birth. This option involves trained midwives in cases of low-risk, healthy pregnancies. For some mothers, being at home in familiar surroundings provides tremendous comfort. The most successful homebirthers are highly committed & trust their body's natural ability to birth.

I honour all midwives to whom being 'with women' means so much more than a job. To those who encourage and remind us that we know when and how and where to give birth and that birth works!
