I think it takes a lot of guts to choose home birth.
Not only guts, but self confidence. And confidence in midwives, as well as your partner.
Families who choose to give birth at home are less than 1% of the population in the United States. That is very revealing of our current culture, don’t you think?
To me, it says most people are very afraid of birth. The most common question home birthers get asked is, “what if something goes wrong?”
This implies that you’ve got to be brave to give birth at home. Although this phrase or opinion has had a negative connotation with a lot of women who have given birth at home, I’d like to spin it in a positive light.
