Choosing home birth...
Of the fourteen births that our family has been blessed with, only one of those births happened in a hospital. Rachel, being the first baby born, had that distinction. After her birth, Mom and Dad realized that the hospital birth process was something that they did not want to do again. They began to look for another option...something that was natural and more "family-oriented". They were able to find a midwife for the next imminent arrival and, when the baby came, the birth took place at home. The experience was so different from the previous time at the hospital. It was much more peaceful, less stressful, and easier on both Mom and Baby. There was no more question in Mom's mind after that; every birth since then has taken place at home.
