I had my first homebirth in 2009. My previous births were all in a hospital. My fourth born child, Luke, was born at home in Austell, Georgia, USA. That child’s birth was among those featured in Elephant Journal’s Homebirth Unveiled—The Voice & Heart of Homebirth Mothers. (150+photos). This photo and commentary is what I submitted for his homebirth.
Luke’s homebirth was truly a great experience. I went on to have two more homebirths while living abroad in the United Arab Emirates. My homebirths have been some of my most cherished experiences of my life. I would happily experience any of them over again in a heartbeat.
