In its simple and timeless way, homebirth allows the personality of each birth to unfold as it was designed to, in the midst of each family’s unique gathering of people and things they treasure most. Hospitals are designed to help you when you have a health problem, and they are perfect for that purpose.

Why would anyone want to give up this rite of passage, this act of creation, to being numbed and drugged and cut? Within the sacred setting of home and family, why not experience the transformation of birth where you can be in your full power?
