I had a home birth with all three of my kids, if I could do it all over again I would do it at home. Home births are an excellent bonding experience between mother and child, also the opportunity a woman gives to herself to learn more about her body and a better understanding of the needs of your newborn when he or she finally arrives, you don't have to worry about your baby been taken away by the nurses once is born. The risk? These days midwifes are well trained, enough to know when is time to have an ambulance on the spot or when to tell someone with a high risk pregnancy to get the right medical attention when necessary. Our midwife delivered not only our children but she also delivered my husband, his cousins and also a few of my friends kids, she has delivered over 3000 kids where I live all I can say is that I'm thankful for her help and her experience...
