Details of experience
My planned homebirth for our first child with the midwife of our choice was a safe, private and meaningful experience. Our baby was born with no complications and apart from a hairline tear, there were no notable physical impacts on/in my body. We are grateful to have had access to this model of care and had sought it again the second time round (also a successful and wonderful experience).
