Excerpt

The experience of home birth was an empowering one and has left me today with a can do attitude in all areas of my mothering responsibility. Breastfeeding past two, can do. Breastfeeding two, can do too. Saying yes to the natural development of my sons’ immune system, definitely. Staying at home to raise them and teach them myself and give them the gift of my undivided attention, yes. Yes, yes and yes. And it’s all down to a very successful and experience of going against the current and doing what felt profoundly right. Birthing my way. No one single experience has so empowered or liberated me.

I didn’t wake up one morning and said “hey, I want to have my baby at home, then I’ll breastfeed him past two years and at the same time with his little brother, stay home to raise them, find an alternative to have them vaccinated and then home-school the two of them. But since my homebirth experience I’ve gone from strength to strength, growing in confidence significantly from the success of each previous step.

When my baby was born on my floor next to the bed in which he was conceived there was this feeling of ‘it was done well’. Perfectly, and nothing else could match such a birth. I was calm and content. The people around me; my husband, my mother and midwife, were all people whom I knew and trusted. I knew I could call for water or juice or any thing. I knew the tub, I was in my environment and in control of the whole scene. And it wasn’t an accident. It was a planned and prepared experience. I had laid down the conditions and foundations for this birth before the actual fact.

I had overcome all obstacles to get there. The biggest was ignorance. Mine, that of my husband and that of people around me who said things like “the doctors won’t let you. You shouldn’t it’s your first birth, that’s a real risk, are you sure?” And “what if, what if, what if …...” All those unfounded fears which were present in all our minds. The first thing I had to do was educate myself. And with new knowledge the unfounded and misguided beliefs concerning a homebirth flew right out of the window. In fact it was replaced by the conviction that a hospital was my least favourite of options - far from it being the obvious solution.
