Thanks for sharing your story. I had my first two children in the hospital and asked for an epidural the moment I checked in at the front desk. I knew that I “couldn’t” do it without an epidural. Now I am pregnant with my third child and after watching the documentary “The Business of Being Born” and doing a lot of reading about childbirth, I have completely changed my opinion about my ability as a childbearing woman. I had started with an OBGYN, but then promptly switched to a midwife at Alma after visiting Alma’s Childbirth Center. The birthing rooms at Alma are peaceful and my midwife team is warm, nurturing, and capable. I am so excited to have a natural childbirth without drugs. My daughter is going to have a completely different birth experience than my boys did. I am excited for my children to see that women can give birth without drugs and hospitals. Midwives have been delivering babies forever and they have a vast amount of experience.
