I am thrilled to announce a months-long series that I will be posting on during the remainder of my pregnancy: “A Natural Phenomenon: Having a Natural Birth in an Unnatural World.”
During the series, we will focus on preparing yourself for a natural birth in a hospital setting (because that’s where I birth!), but we will also have guest posts on birthing center and home births!
My first labor was anything but natural, but I worked to prepare myself for a natural labor the second time around, and I was so happy to birth with no pain meds! (And really found the labor itself and recovery period much better for me personally.)
Today, I’m posting about different birth settings over at Keeper of the Home. Here’s an excerpt:
With all this talk of birthing babies around here at Keeper of the Home, I asked Stephanie if I could compare three common birth settings: home, hospital and birthing center births.*
Whereas a home birth may seem the most natural choice for natural mamas, all three settings have their pros and cons and should be compared, evaluated and prayed through thoroughly before making a decision on where to birth your baby.
Hop on over to Keeper of the Home to read the rest of this post!
