About Birth






My birthday was spent so surrounded by loved ones and happiness, I feel so greatful. I have been thinking so much about birth options since I became pregnant and even before that. I´ve heard and read many different birth stories, and the homebirth ones always seem the most compelling because of the strength, the power , the grace, the faith portayed in them. I decided to contact one of the very few (actually I think there´s two) homebirth midwived that practice here in Chile. It didn´t go very well. I was hoping maybe I would feel a conection with her that could make me trust her and help me make a desicion, because truth be told, I am not sure homebirth is my choice yet, just because I have a small fear of what if something goes wrong, something unexpected happens and you´d better be at the Clinic. Well there was no such connection whatsoever and after we´d left her place I was feeling rather down. Will I find what I am looking for? I do trust everything will be allright, and I mainly trust this based on the fact that I can feel my little baby so present and alive inside of me, and also because I feel Carlos´absolute support at all times.
I wish for the arrival of our boy to be a magical, beautiful and empowering experience for all of us, I wish this with all my heart.
