It's always wonderful to see and hear about the rise of homebirths. I think the reason I get so happy is #1 I'm a midwife so thats always a plus!
#2 It makes me happy to know that more women are educating themselves on birth, and becoming aware of their birth options.
The reason why my first 3 births weren't with midwives was because I didn't even know about it! To not even have the option, or knowledge I suppose, to be able to choose or decline is an injustice to a woman. So I'm thrilled to know that women are knowing ALL their options for pregnancy and birth, and hopefully getting educated on it as well, and in-turn, allowing them to make the decision.
