I love this site and I am a big fan of the film TBOBB. I planned a homebirth, part of which was influenced by my viewing of the film. I'm so happy I did. I had wonderful midwives and a lovely doula. My heartbreak, though, was that my homebirth dreams ended in the operating room. After nearly 70 hours of labor, it was clear I needed to transfer, and a surgical birth quickly revealed itself as my only option.
Thank you for sharing your story. I desire a home birth and I'm seeking the best advice out there. I hear the stories that put fear into my mind that you should just go to the hospital. I think nature knows better than anyone the best way to give birth and am glad you were able to transfer to a facility to have your child. Again, thank your for your story.
Homebirth Cesarean, the closed facebook page, has been instrumental in helping me heal from my own homebirth transport that ended with me in the operating room. I was devastated to say the least. My midwife told me about HBC and through that group of other homebirth cesarean moms, I have found so much healing, support and information.
