Home birth is safe and empowering. I have had a number of people accuse me of caring more about my birth experience than the safety of my baby, and my response to them is always that if you really look at the information available, a woman who is allowed to labor in a comfortable and non-invasive environment will have a healthy and happier outcome than a woman who is constantly monitored and pushed along by a hospital experience. It is time that we give the choice back to the mothers about how and where they are "allowed" to birth. And it is also time for the medical community to start doing less to meddle with birthing and to really listen to their pregnant moms.
