'A week for the record book. Two sets of triplets and a set of twins, 7 of 8 babies breech (including a presenting single footling that was converted to frank - for you birth folk) - all vaginal, all fine, not even a scratch :-)' - update from the OB who attended my homebirth in 2010, who is now working across the world with DWB. ♥ Suck it, American maternity system....

None of the ideas expressed above are actually mine. They are told to me by Luthor and Ferdinand, the five inch tall space aliens who live under my desk. In return for these ideas, I have given them permission to eat any dust bunnies they may find under there.shine.gif

That's awesome and amazing and totally normal at the same time! I love hearing how other cultures handle pregnancy, birth and mothering. Inspiring
