I gave birth to my son naturally — without drugs and much interference from medical staff.
I attended a 12-week Bradley course, paid for a well-trained Doula, labored for nine hours at home, and had L after only 20 minutes in the hospital.
We were discharged seven hours later and took our baby home to get to know him on our own terms.
I would love for other moms to have the same empowering experience I had when giving birth to my son. If I can do it, you most likely can do it, too!
Here are a few resources that will help you on your own journey and help you decide which kind of birth is right for you.

Choices in Childbirth — Non-profit organization that strives to improve maternity care by helping women make informed decisions about where, how and with whom to birth. Through education, outreach and advocacy, we provide information to the public about women’s rights and options in birth.
My Best Birth — Ricki Lake’s wonderful website about natural birth information and much more. She produced the eye-opening movie The Business of Being Born
