The way a child is treated at a home birth is so very different than in a hospital. At home the room is warm and dimly lit. It is quiet and the first voices baby hears are likely to be those of Mom and Dad. Often Mom or Dad is the one catching baby and bringing baby to Mom's chest. Siblings or grandparents may be present as well. Home birth babies rarely cry because they have an easy and gentle transition. Baby doesn't leave the parents presence. During a home birth the other family members can be involved as much as the mother is comfortable with having them involved. Dads who have previously experienced hospital birth have remarked that they felt much more useful at a home birth and were able to enjoy the experience. Please contact me to discover if home birth is the right choice for you.
