These are a few of the many things I loved about having a home birth.
- Don't worry about when to go to the hospital or birth center. No need to pack a bag.
- Don't have to ride in a car while experiencing contractions.
- Midwife watches over only your labor and birth. You don't share a care provider with several other women at the same time. You're not monitored remotely.
- Midwife observes throughout your labor, birth, and recovery. There are no shift changes and she doesn't just run in at the last minute to catch. (Unless your labor is really fast. Then Daddy better get ready!)
