The Business of Being Born

I just watched a documentary on the birthing process in the US and I am convinced I am going to give birth at home with a midwife whenever I get pregnant. If you want to know why America has the 2nd highest infant mortality rate in the civilized world, check out the documentary done bu Ricki Lake, yep, Ricki Lake, called The Business of Being Born. whoa. PS...it is an instant watch on Netflix right now.

I totally agree, although I did have two babies in the hospital.

I totally missed this blog of yours! YES I agree on having your baby at home! lol I'm a granola freak-cloth diaper, home birth, extended B.feeding, all around crunchy mama! This confirms-Tal told me the other day that if she had to pick 1 person most like me it would be you! lol And I guess she's right!
We were going to birth our 2nd baby at www.thebabyplacehome.com I guess our next baby will be there when we get pg again!
