Midwifery Today, Issue 93, Spring 2010
Deciding where and how to birth is a woman’s right. This issue examines the choice to birth in one’s own home and delves into issues that affect homebirth midwives and doulas. An extremely organized midwife gives tips on how to pack the perfect birth kit; another midwife asks, “Are we ready to standardize homebirth?” and an L&D nurse offers advice for turning the dreaded transfer from home to hospital into a more pleasant experience. We’ve also included a special section devoted entirely to homebirth stories.
