Just lots of love. Food glorious food! Home cooked food for dinner rather than hospital slops! Wonderful goodies that I had stocked up on, or dear friends had brought for my ravenous post-birth, breastfeeding appetite. And no one to tell you not to eat or drink during labour.
I did it, what a miracle! For me the crowning glory of a home birth is the sense of pride in yourself for having navigated the birth laborinth naturally and mindfully without the aid of drugs.
And the satisfaction of proving all the negative minded nay-sayers wrong. Home birth gives your baby the most gentle and loving entry into the world. It supports your diverse physical, emotional and spiritual needs.

Programmes like one born every minute should be banned from TV - these kind of TV shows are allegedly reality TV - but only the worst and most dramatic births are shown, making women think birth has to be like that. Usually of actually giving birth. It's unknown, they have no idea what to expect and mums are all too keen to share the gory details of their birth traumas with other women. Why would you want to do this?
We need to uncover that fear, what is really the basis of the fear? A story they heard or one specific thing they are worried will happen during labour? Women are not cattle, we are individuals and every birth experience is so unique. Every person deals with new and stressful situations in a different way. The Birth OCKS philosophy aims to find out how mum deals with everyday situations and then match their everyday coping techniques to coping and comfort techniques for birthing. So many reasons.
When we are positive and happy this positively affects our baby. During childbirth we want to encourage mum to be positive and to relax. When mum relaxes she will release Oxytocin. This time, is how to beat the dreaded 'morning' sickness! Top tips on avoiding morning sickness during pregnancy.
