    My first baby was born in a birth center with midwives. I had access to a birthing tub and shower. I could stay mobile through my entire labor, and I ate and stayed hydrated.

    Many people want a low-intervention birth for the benefit of the baby and mother. Though most of us do it, just leaving your home often acts as an intervention in the birth process. Two of my births were almost completely free of intervention. My first "intervention-less" birth happened at a...
