THOUSANDS MORE WOMEN IN THE U.S. ARE CHOOSING HOMEBIRTH

YAY! "More women in the United States are choosing to give birth at home in recent years. After decades of decline, a new study found home births increased by 20 percent between 2004 and 2008..."



And to think that just 100 years ago "almost all births took place at home." Yet, by 1969, less than 1% of babies were born at home. WOW!!! How did so many American women ever come to believe that birthing their babies in a technological, trauma-filled, disease-ridden environment would be good for them? Talk about effective propoganda!!! Thank goodness many of us are coming to our senses.
