My husband and I discussed birthing at home for our second child but because of previous experiences with our daughter he wasn't 100% on board. We started going to appointments at the hospital. After starting our hypnobabies training and deciding what we wanted in a birth experience he agreed to at least meet with a homebirth midwife. We met only with Cathy and knew a homebirth is what we wanted. She was such a calming presence I knew I needed her to be there when we welcomed our son.
I had prodromal labor and every time I would call Cathy she was very kind and patient with me. 5 days after my initial call of "I think this is it!" My water finally broke. I am so glad Cathy was there. She was exactly the thing I needed with me during a very fast and intense 3 hour labor. Even my photographer was impressed how she just came in very quietly and got to work. I am so happy we got the experience we did and even my skeptical husband said there isn't any other way to have a baby now.
