Good morning!
I just wanted to drop by and wish you a very good morning..... AND to tell you to please keep your cold weather. Thank you very much!
Hi Anna, Thank you for your
Hi Anna, Thank you for your insightful comments. As you know from reading the blog, the statement about a 2 to 3 fold increased risk in home birth vs. hospital birth came from a spokesman from the The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. They also stated that the "absolute risk of planned home births is low" while citing "published medical evidence shows it does carry a two- to three-fold increase in the risk of newborn death compared with planned hospital births." We do not know to what published medical evidence they refer. Certainly there are many successful home births. We have to agree with you, though that every woman has to make her own informed decision and there is indeed no way to know if there would have been a different outcome for Ms. Lovell had she delivered in a hospital. Again, thank you for commenting. It is these types of comments that open a healthy dialogue.

Love Enough for Two
It was getting close to the time for me to deliver our 2nd child, just 6 short weeks away. Throughout the pregnancy, I was so excited about having another child. I LOVED being a mommy. I just knew I would love being the mommy of two babies!
