Hah, trick question. My answer when people ask me is: I have no idea!
What I DO care about if someone asks is that they think about what they want, what they want their ENTIRE experience to feel like (NOT just the birth!) and if they’re ready to get real with themselves about their own limitations and beliefs.
Anything is possible…but in modern life and cultural craziness around birth, most first time mamas have a LOT to wade through. We all deserve support in the way we want it, and freebirth is only truly the answer for some. I talk about the benefits and drawbacks of having an autonomous midwife present for your journey; and how to better understand what we offer and if that fits your vision.
If you’re having your first baby, come along with me on this conversation and see where you land!
