Welcome to the Tales of a Kitchen Witch Blog.
He loves his big sister!
I am incredibly happy with how my homebirth turned out, but now that I’ve had time to process it there are some things I could have done differently. Now, I say that with the caveat that I think everything happened exactly as it needed to for a positive outcome. For example, I am certain I dodged a bullet when my midwife dumped me. That was probably the best thing that could have happened. I’m sure she would have insisted on all the little intrusions that are so necessary and on the checklist of a midwife’s duties. I’m pretty sure she would not have been as content to let me work out how to move the baby down and would have eventually sent me to the hospital when Henry refused to budge from the spot he had wedged himself. I would have missed out on an amazing experience that has changed me for the better.
So what things might I change?
