On top of the slimy baby thing, I’m just not the all natural (or brave) type. So, today I’m going to share with you the top five reason I don’t do home births. Maybe one day I’ll have my friend write an opposing list and you can decide from there how you want to birth your own child J
1.) Epidurals!!! Best $2000 we ever spent.
2.) The Mess. I’m not going to go into gory detail here, but I REALLY don’t want to clean THAT up.
3.) The Beds. Because my bed at home does not move up and down with the touch of a button.
4.) The recovery area. Are you kidding me? Two whole days in a room with my quiet newborn, no other kids, nurses who attend to me, food I don’t have to cook, and a nursery allowing me a full nights rest. What’s not to love?
5.) Other Medical Technology. Some women don’t like having monitors and all that jazz hooked up to them, but I am all for it.
And that’s that. My best wishes to you and your choice of birthing place!
