About Us

My Personal Experience

I believe that birth is not a medical emergency. On the contrary, giving birth at home is the calmest and most peaceful way to greet your newborn baby.

I have personally experienced three different types of birth. My first child was born at the hospital with Pitocin, an epidural, and the whole nine yards. Baby #2 was born at a birth center in a tub with the help of a midwife. My third, fourth, and fifth babies were born at home unassisted, with only my husband present. My unassisted homebirths were by far my favorite births.

After my first unassisted birth, I decided to write about my experiences. That’s how “The Unassisted Baby” was born. While I provide resources in my book and on my website, I want to encourage you to research pregnancy and childbirth on your own. Your decision on how to give birth should be an informed choice.
