do you or have you had a homebirth with or without assistance? Would you do it again? Do you believe God should be in control of your birth instead of doctors?

  • 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.

  • I want God in on it, but I want a doctor too.

  • i really won't mind giving birth on my own if it can not be helped but the comfort of having a doctor there in case something goes wrong is a must. God is very important to me, but He gave us doctors for a reason. You do what you can, i guess. the miracle of the baby is enough to show you the workings of God.

  • OH BTW! i had a natural birth, one without any epidural and it was a wonderful experience (painful at first but wonderful lol). so that's another route if you don't want the influence of doctors to outweigh the influence of God.
