It's been awhile since we've updated this blog but the natural birthing spirit is alive and well! Life just gets kinda of crazy sometimes. Anyway, I just recently came across this article written by THE home birth guru Ina May Gaskin. She has revolutioned birthing practices since the 70's and has taught doctors a thing or two about birth.
Here's a link to her bio . She is amazing!
This article entitled "Home Birth- Why it's Necessary" is a short piece on the role that home birth has played in the evolution of all birthing practices, even hospital births. I really like that she puts in there how women have to give birth where they're most comfortable and if that is a hospital, then that's where they need to be. Of course I'm paraphrasing but it's all about making the choice that's right for us and that means educating ourselves.
