Ep 37: Alexa Chooses Homebirth With Her First Baby

Show Notes

Did you decide to have a homebirth with your first baby, or did this decision take place later down the line?  For mamas pregnant with your first, do you ever find yourself thinking, “Perhaps I’ll have a homebirth… with my second…”? 

As a doula, Alexa experienced a number of births before becoming pregnant.  This experience pushed her towards the open arms of her homebirth midwives.  She knew that she wanted to give birth naturally… and she felt certain that that goal would be more difficult to achieve in the hospital setting, where the type and attitude of whatever care providers happened to be working that day could truly color her birth experience.

And so… with the support of her husband, midwives and doula, Alexa had an amazing homebirth.
