i do not know what exactly a quiverfull is, but i just had my fifth. i had midwives at home with me for 4 out of 5 of my births. i do believe that birth is very natural, and natural birth is probably how God intended it to be. my problem with a lot of the hospital births is that the interventions seem to create emergency situations. i know that there are true emergencies, and i never have a negative thought for anyone that has a hospital birth, it is not for every one. it is nice to have options! my one hospital birth was an emergency. he was 8 weeks early. i thank God every day that there were the medical professional there to take care of my son when he was born!
i do believe doctors are great for emergency medicine. i do not believe that most child births are medical emergencies.
