I come from a long line of women who have had their babies at home. My Mother was born in 1933, she was delivered by her Grandmother and she was a month premature. She was a very healthy, strong child. I had both of my daughters with a mid-wife at a birthing center in 1977 and 1978. I am proud that both of my daughters have chosen to use mid-wives for the birth of their children. Hospitals are for emergencies and for sickness - birthing children is definately not a sickness and many times not an emergency. The mid-wives I have been honored to know have always been caring, intelligent, mindful professionals. Let's give them our support and provide Mothers and Fathers with options for the birth of their children.
