  User Comments and Quotes  
Author: Sarah Bryce - Id: 45

"For every story of a successful hospital  birth there is a story of a successful home  birth, and the same with disaster stories. However, it comes down to freedom. Should a woman have the freedom to decide where to give  birth? Yes. Should she have the freedom to decide who will be there? Yes. Babies get born in cars, in ambulances, in airplanes, in fields, all the time, and turn out fine. I will stand on my right to decide to give  birth in my own bedroom, with medical personnel present, and make my decisions about how my body and my child will be treated during the birthing process. I will not be told when I must give  birth (40 weeks are usually miscounted). I will not be rushed into surgery because of a "non progressing labor," or be told how I must position myself when giving  birth (did you know that laying on one's back is the *worst* position for the mother?) or anything else. You can have your epidural, I will take my natural  birth."
