Home birthing

For our third welcomed addition we received beautiful and soul-filled pregnancy care by my talented and wonderful midwife Erika Urban of urban birth. And if your in Minnesota I highly recommend her. Anyhow, Choosing to birth at home was a natural decision for our family and it’s one of the best ones we’ve ever made.  To be able to relax into birth gently, and calmly, and to be able to be fully engaged in the ecstasy of the birth process was an amazing thing likely not reproducible in a hospital environment.  We had our other children present and them being able to freely walk around and check on mom whilst playing with their cars and trucks was a great and wonderful blessing for them.  Surely we wanted them present if they so choose (and they did choose!) to see the birth of their new baby brother,  A home birth allowed this to occur organically.

Home birthing was an incredible experience, one that is truly worthy of another baby to add! 



 As a side not: I love hearing about home birthing.  If you have had an amazing home birth as well please share them with me!!
