I have just read a posting and watched a video of this midwife's own birth. Rather than putting the video in here I am posting a link to the entry in her blog. It is her story and her video and needs to be seen as such. Please go and look and read.
She talks of the birth as a difficult struggle. I doubt that it would have been less of a struggle in a hospital setting and may not have ended as happily. She is a brave woman to share her true feelings about this birth and I applaud her for doing so. Do you want to share your thoughts about this?
