As we’ve said before, the reasons people choose home birth are as varied as the people themselves. From weighing the evidence and determining that the pros and cons of home birth best fit with their value system to feeling like it is only at home that they will feel uninhibited enough to birth undisturbed…the reasons families choose home birth are numerous.
We’ve been exploring this question, “Why home birth?” on social media. So for this week’s podcast, we wanted to talk about why we–as mothers and midwives–chose home birth for ourselves and why we continue to make it our life’s work. Please join us for this week’s episode! And, if you’re inspired, please feel free to send us your quote describing why you chose home birth along with a picture of you–your birth or your family–and we may feature it on social media!
