Thanks to Jennifer for sharing the November 2013 Kentucky home birth story of Shay. Shay was born in Louisville, KY. The entire story is on Jennifer’s blog, so click on over there to read the full story and see some wonderful photos.
“I kept asking my midwife, “How do I know when to push?” She said my body would let me know. I hated that answer. I wanted something definite. I was tired of hearing, “your body will know what to do…” But it turns out she was right. When it was time for me to push our baby out, without even thinking about it I hopped into the squatting position in the tub. It was pretty amazing how my body just took over at that point.”
