Issue 122

Summer 2017

Theme: Homebirth

Homebirth is a topic that our readers can never get enough of, so we made it the theme of this issue. The offerings range from four unique birth stories, two articles that advise what to take to a homebirth, midwives’ thoughts on homebirth in the past and present, and a number of other articles dealing with related subjects, such as complications and prolonged second stage.

Cover photo by Katie Mathis (katiemathisphoto.com). Katie spends her days living on call for her birth clients while living life to the fullest for her own family. She was first introduced to the birth world while exploring her own childbirth options. Katie is an award-winning photographer and doula who uses her passion and expertise to help families in and around the Phoenix, Arizona, area.

Pictured: This duo was not intending to have a homebirth but when the brand new birth center was not ready for labor day the CNMs and CPMs teamed up and created a beautiful homebirth experience for the parents. The room was filled to the brim with oxytocin as Dad supported his wife through delivering their 9 lb 10 oz baby boy in the comfort of their own home.
