Are home births, when attended by midwives, safe? Since I am crazy busy right now, I am going to let the experts speak today.
Whether you’re pro-home birth or more inclined to choose a birth center or hospital setting, check this video out. I promise it’s worth it ; – )
UPDATE: The video was marked private by the owner. So sorry for the inconvenience.
As a side note, home births costs less, too. Daniel and Katie are covered through his work, but the cost to add me was almost $1K per month. As a result, we are paying for this one out of pocket and looking for an option with a higher deductible for me now that I no longer have a corporate position.
I would never put my baby’s health at risk to gain a financial advantage, but since I believe home is the best place for me to give birth the savings are just a bonus.
Did this video change your view of home births? Would you do it (if you have a uterus)?
