    Midwife Supervised Childbirth: Birth The Way Your Body Intended

    Giving birth is actually a natural process. It’s not a disease. So there’s really no need to go to hospital to give birth. You can do a homebirth and have a licensed midwife with you in that process. I highly recommend it because when you give birth in a hospital, you’re at the discretion and the timeframe of the doctors who may want to go home, go play golf, go do whatever they want to do. They may speed up things, or whatever, but when you’re doing a homebirth, you’re actually on your time schedule. You get to decide, or your body gets to decide, how and when the baby…

    Sheila Kitzinger on the fear that exists in childbirth

    Subtítles by Toni Harman oneworldbirth.net Sheila Kitzinger Fear of Failure Well when you go into hospital you become a patient. Of course, you may not think yourself so much as a patient. And a woman who is really being patient about being a patient, when she is in hospital, thinks: “Oh dear, I’ll do the wrong thing, and I’ll harm my baby, or my baby will either be born brain-damaged because I haven’t done the right thing, Or may die.” And this is very frightening this thought.. Women are apologetic about what they do in birth. They feel that they must somehow have caused something to go wrong. And I…
