Every day somebody downloads my free birth preferences template . I hope that the hundreds of people who have downloaded it in the months since I put it on my website have found it useful.
Now to support my work with home birth hopeful parents through the Home Birth Workshops which I run for the local National Childbirth Trust branch, I have written and uploaded another free download. This one seeks to answer the five most common questions which people ask about home birth.
What are those questions? Here they are:
Why would you choose a home birth?
Isn’t it dangerous?
Aren’t you being selfish?
What if something goes wrong?
What! You aren’t having an epidural? (in other words, what about pain relief?)
All these questions are gone into in more detail at my workshops. But for mothers and fathers to be who can’t make it to the workshops I hope this download will be a good starting place. I also include some suggestions for books and websites to look at.
Meanwhile I continue to run the home birth workshops on the third Tuesday evening of every month except August and December.
