If women lose the right to say where and how they birth their children, then they will have lost something that’s as dear to life as breathing. Having a home birth is a transformative experience that give you a new perspective on life
As soon as we found out we were pregnant, we knew we wanted it to be special. Rushing to a hospital and being attached to beeping machines was not what we had in mind. After some research, we learned that there was a birthing center practically around the corner. We went in for a visit and loved it, so we decided that we’d birth there!
Three months before our due date, the birthing center abruptly closed and we were left scrambling. We didn’t know much about home births, but assumed it was dangerous. We visited some of our local hospitals, but they were far from what we were looking for. Time was ticking and we had a decision to make
Having a home birth was a transformative experience that gave us a new perspective on life. It also gave us a new mission. We want to share the love and joy that we felt during this special time with other families. We also want women to know that they are strong and capable of natural birth, even though society would have you think otherwise.
