I bring you this post in a direct follow-up to yesterday’s post, “Top Ten Reasons Home Birth Results in a Better Birth Experience Than Hospital Birth.“
The overwhelming number of brilliant comments left at both the BBH Blog and on Facebook was enough to create an entirely new post highlight them.
I purposely only posted 10 reasons why home birth is so fantastic to incite other home birth mamas to share their reasons why the experience of birth at home trumps hospital birth emotionally and physically. I’m so glad they did!
In this video I share my many thanks to these wonderful home birthing women! BBH Vlog #5: Home Birth Comment Queens
Here are just some of the reasons why home birth is so special to so many women:
“Ice-cream sundaes about 14 hours in…just cus you feel like it!” – Sandi
“You won’t get bullied, yelled at, coerced into interventions you don’t want, birth raped.” – Gaylee
“After a home birth, your baby stays with you to nurse & bond without interruption. He can look at you with clear eyes, smell you & your home instead of sterilized hospital linens, hear your breathing, heartbeat, and voice instead of some nurses who’s taken him away to be cleaned.” – PocketBuddha
“Having my baby in MY OWN BED! and no one to wake me up in the middle of the night to …. take my tempature!!” – Tammie
“Your children can see how a baby should be born; can welcome their sibling into the world and don’t have to be without their Mummy at all.” -Caroline
“No nurses constantly asking you if you want an epidural or telling you to lie down! No beeping machines to make your nerves go crazy. No shift changes. You can climb in your own comfy bed after the birth! Baby never leaves your side.” – Danialle
