Bold for the cause…

Leave a comment

“My goal is to be bold for the cause of home birth and natural childbirth. We live in unusual times with the national cesarean rate above 30%; certain doctors’ and hospital rates have soared beyond 50%. More than ninety percent of American births include drugs, I.V.’s, pulling babies out with instruments of great force and other invasive procedures. Vaginal births after cesarean are on the way out in the land of the free, home of the brave. Against these odds, we are at risk of forgetting how to give birth normally.

My prayer  is that the recording and sharing of birth stories and natural childbirth information will serve to restore confidence in God and His design for us to bring forth our children in grace and strength.”
