I visited a woman that my husband works with to hear how her recent natural birth went at a birth center in Tualatin. Her new little baby looked so small! Her birth story was pretty amazing--she had a beautiful water birth. I am going to try a natural home birth this time, and it's good for me to hear the stories of other women who have been there. If any of you would be willing to share your birth story, whether it was a hospital birth or home birth, I would be interested to hear what you liked or disliked about either experience. I do believe for those moms with healthy pregnancies, that labor is a natural process, and not a medical event. Since I did not experience any complications in my delivery with Samuel, I feel I am a good candidate for a home birth, and the hospital is just a mile from our house should any complications arise. I'm now in the process of selecting a midwife, which should not be too difficult, as there are so many wonderful midwives in Portland. I've heard Portland is the best place in the country to birth at home!
