After seeing "The Business of Being Born", my partner and I are absolutely positive that home birthing is for us. Partly because we will be having our daughter in Portugal and Portuguese is not my first language (infact, it is barely a second language). Also, we feel personally aligned with principals and practices of home birthing.
Due to a series of events (mainly immigration) I have had to return to Chicago while Bruno stays at home with my step-daughter and family. We have been living off savings as we transition to a new place in our life. With all the confusion, we started to feel that we might have to "settle" for a hospital birth.
During the process of excepting that we might have to give birth in a hospital because of financial blockers, I started to question could home births be a possibility for everyone? Or is home birthing a privilege.
Through this pregnancy, transformation, and process, we have started an Indiegogo campaign.
So, we are asking that you donate, share, or send love our way as we start this campaign.
