Who has homebirths, anyway?
In the first three years of Local Care Midwifery, PLLC, a great variety of folks have joined our practice, received attentive midwifery care and yes, given birth in their own homes. Who would do that?
These people would!
Librarians, lots of librarians
Full time moms and home makers
Teachers, lots of teachers
Nuclear physicists (one nuclear physicist mom, and several home birth dads)
Many computer programmers and software specialists
Engineers (a few moms, many dads)
Lawyers (mom and dads)
*This is a partial list of the occupations I have noted on birth certificates in the last three years. Unless noted otherwise, I am listing the birthing woman’s occupation.
May all babies be born into loving hands
