I don't usually like telling pregnant women about my birth, because I had a tough one. I don't want to create fear. But no matter where you are giving birth, whether in a hospital, birth center or at home, complications can happen. Home is where my son was born, and he was a big baby, almost 10 pounds. His shoulders got stuck on the way out after the head had come out. This is called shoulder dystocia.
Angie, being the amazing midwife that she is, got my son out. She used tricks that I'm not sure a doctor in a hospital would be patient or confident or educated enough to do. Angie is a blessing and I trust her with my birth. So, don’t be terrified of complications, but make sure you have a great midwife.
