A growing choice for birthing in USA is Unassisted Birth. I understand the birth takes place at home or another choice location(non medical), and most often the father present (maybe another person) There is no MW or trained birth support person (mostly). The mom has prepared "a nest to birth" and lets birth be birth.
I am a seasoned doula/educator, with a mom thinking with her next pregnancy #4 she wants a unassisted birth--but wants me there as her doula. She has experience negetive hospital birth and positive free standing birth center births( I was her doula then). WOW, love this mom and family but red flags say not without a midwife.
Anyone been in this situation --yet??? What was the outcome??
