No matter what you decide to do as far as hospital birth or home birth…look at these videos and take in what this woman is saying. Her name is Ina May Gaskin. She is a lay midwife in Tennesse that lives and teaches on a commune.
With a few people I know pregnant or trying to get that way I wanted to post these videos. I actually forget where I came across her name today as I have been trying to watch these videos. I do have to say that I wish I had known a lot of this stuff she talks about with my son. I probably would have still had to have a c-section…but I think had I been armed with this information I may have not have been so terrified and made the experience a lot more tolerable at the very least.
Even though I will have another c-section with this one, I will still think about what she said and try to apply it to my situation to help ease me into life with a preschooler and newborn!
