Three and a half weeks early with my oldest, 10 days late with my second, I had no idea when my third baby would arrive. And I really had no idea that she'd arrive in 14 minutes.
Pregnant with my 4th daughter, I wanted a different experience. My other kids had been delivered by a Dr. with an epidural, but things don't always happen as planned...
After a poor experience with the OB who delivered my first baby, I wanted something different. I moved from an OB to midwives.
"My midwife encouraged me to come to a point where I could be at peace with whatever the outcome was. If I didn’t get to have a homebirth, as I wanted, the important thing would be that the baby was healthy."
