I just finished watching the Duggar grand baby be born…. and I had to do an entry on home births.
I actually recently had a co-worker who had a home birth, and when I hear her story I get chills. Honestly, it’s an amazing experience shared between husband and wife that is the perfect way to start a new little life. I love her story and what I have learned about birthing from it. It’s God’s way to make it happen and it’s totally perfect 99.9% of the time.
One out of ten babies requires resuscitation, but that can usually be be performed by an adequately prepared midwife.
But… it’s the .1% that I have seen, those babies that would’ve died if we weren’t there, the moms that would’ve bled out… I LOVE when someone has a great home birth experience. I do. However, I just think about if that baby died… and you were left to wonder what could’ve been…
I am glad theirs turned out amazing. I wish it was something I could experience but with all the horror scenes that play out in my head the entire 9 months I’m pregnant, I don’t see that ever happening… (or actually, me giving birth again, but that’s another entry).
