Does anyone plan an emergency home birth?
Actually there are a few pregnant women who want a home birth but plan a hospital birth but wait at home to the last moment to leave and end up with an emergency home birth.
It is sort of unfair to call any unexpected home birth an 'emergency'. An emergency implies something is drastically wrong.
In fact most 'emergency' home births are straight forward, easy births. However if the birthing mother and father do not have the right birth and coaching skills then they can become unnecessarily afraid of their emergency home delivery ... so sad really.
Most women would give their eye tooth to have an easy birth.
We want all families to use The Birthing Better with The Pink Kit Method® so that you will never be afraid at your child's birth especially if it's an emergency home birth.
'We had the bags packed, car full of gas, grandma and grandpa lined up to baby sit so at the slightest sign we'd head off to the hospital. Well, Life can throw a curve ball now and again. My wife woke up in the middle of the night saying to me 'I feel weird'. I asked 'how weird?' She said 'Just weird'.
What does that mean? In hindsight, I know. 20 minutes later she said 'I think I'm pushing'. I said 'Pushing what?' She said 'I'M PUSHING?' I said 'No don't do that?' She said 'Get down there.'
I'd say at this point my mind did several things at once. 'Am I prepared for this?' 'Yes, I have the skills I didn't have at our daughter's birth 3 years earlier'. I never thought 'What should I do?' Once it was clear our baby was coming, my ability to work with my wife clicked in.That wasn't hard, our daughter didn't take long to slip out with us laughing the whole time.
How surprised everyone was the next morning to find all three of us all in bed grinning from ear to ear. My suggestion to all dads ... become skilled then you'll never fall short inside yourself and certainly not in the eyes of the woman you love.'
