And speaking of doing pregnancy “your own way”, check out FREEBIRTHING! Now this is an extreme example of taking things into your own hands. But I do not mean to make these brave and committed mothers out to be extremists or fanatics.Freebirthing is when a mother decides to forego the hospital…even the birthing center. She decides to forego all medical intervention and medication. And she says no to the help of a midwife. She delivers her baby at home, by herself, unassisted. And I do mean unassisted, as in, she herself catches the baby as the baby leaves the womb!I so love this idea! And I don’t think I just love it because my childbirth days are over. I love it because it embodies so many important truths about pregnancy and birth.
