Okay, all you wonderful mama's. I'm pregnant with #3 and am planning a homebirth. I've been reading all sorts of birth stories on the 'net and it's starting to look like no matter where I go, there'll interventions.
I even read about a woman's 6 'unassisted' births - with constant vag exams by hubby, him pushing on uterus to get the kids out & her comment that she never tandemed nursed before & sure wasn't going to start now (side gripe, if you believe God wants you to have a dozen kids, great, but He also created us to breastfeed them until they're ready to wean!!!)
Midwife stories are full of stripped membranes & herbal potions.
Maybe I'm just seeing the negative, but I'd sure like reassurance that our bodies are made to birth babies and there are only rare instances where interventions are trully needed.
Thank you for your ear!!!
