I dropped my husband off at a favorite local coffee shop for him to study for an upcoming actuarial exam. As he was opening the car door I said, “Just so you know, I’ve been having contractions all morning 10 minutes apart. You’re phone isn’t on silent, right?” April 28th was my actual due date. Who has their baby ON their due date?
As soon as I heard Southern Indiana was getting a birth center, I knew I wanted to deliver there. Even though it meant traveling from Louisville, Kentucky, across the river and into the next state, that was preferable to me over a hospital birth.
