  • I personally did not, but there are a lot of women in the group Birth Is Normal that have or are currently planning one. It is not for everyone, but it definitely is for some! :)

    Also, a planned unassisted birth is not putting your baby at risk. There is extensive education, research and planning that goes into it, which always includes a backup plan if unexpected things occur.

  • I can't see doing it by choice! That would not be wise.....
