Home births abandon the cold, sterile environment of a hospital in favor of the familiar comfort of home. They make use of the simple wisdom and kindness of a midwife rather than the pharmaceuticals drugs, surgeries and fancy equipment of a medical doctor. Western medicine is great for emergency situations. Its expertise lies in surgery and pharmaceutical drugs rather than preventive medicine. In the West, pregnant mothers aren’t usually sick, but are often treated like they are. Home births reject this and treat pregnancy with the sense of awe it deserves.
