Homebirth provides a familiar and safe environment for birthing. This helps to keep stress hormones low, and positive birth hormones high, and can therefore make the birth easier and less painful. Women choose a homebirth because they believe in their body’s ability to birth, wish to involve their partner and other children more, or prefer to reduce the chance of intervention in their labour. And becuase let’s face it: pregnancy and birth are normal, healthy and natural experiences. We don’t go to hospital to experience other normal, healthy and natural bodily experiences such as food digestion, urination, menstruation, defecation …. we trust that our bodies work, and that these processes work too.
