Giving birth at home ... a great experience
There has been an increasing amount of families who are choosing to give birth at home rather than birth in hospital or birthing center. This trend is evident in most developed countries, and represents the movement toward woman's choice.
In the past, many nations mandated a standardized birthing procedure, often in a hospital, rarely at a Birth Center or at home with a trained midwife.
But as this century has progressed we have realized that just as every woman and every baby are individuals, each birth is an individual experience: women ought to be able to choose how and where they give birth. One of the choices becoming more popular today is home birth. Women can choose to give birth with the support of a midwife.
Home birthing families take on added responsibility. Having great birth skills and birth coaching skills is as important as having CPR and first aid skills.
Do everything you can do to have a safe and absolutely wonderful home birth
Homebirthing families want to:
- Enjoy giving birth in their own home with their midwife.
- Have a safe experience for both baby and mother.
- Avoid expensive, often unnecessary hospital stays
- Give birth in familiar and comfortable surroundings
Whether you have a planned unassisted home birth or free birth, a home birth with your midwife or an unexpected home birth, birth skills are essential. The Birthing Better with The Pink Kit Method® provides a means for you and your partner to take responsibility for your birth and to teach yourself the skills you will need to make your home birth a wonderful and satisfying experience.
Your Birthing Better skills allow you to make your home birth the best it can be, even if you can't stay at home. The human body is unpredictable, and the pregnant body is even more so. Many women who choose a home birth encounter complications and the medical necessity arises for a transfer to the hospital. This is what you, having chosen a home birth, probably fear most. But you can use The Pink Kit skills to birth better even if you don't have a better birth. Working together with your partner and your baby will make your experience positive, no matter where you are.
