My home birth experience


Many women who are having a “precipitous” pregnancy – they are anticipated to have a labor of three hours’ time or less – choose to have a home birth. This option becomes especially appealing for women for whom their first delivery experience was stressful, long, or traumatic. Home birth can be a great option for women who want a labor, delivery, and recovery period that will not disrupt their ordinary lives. Having a home birth allows women to experience labor, delivery, and recovery in the comfort of home. Having a home birth can allow women to feel more prepared and in-control of their pregnancy.
