As a CNM, I chose
homebirth because of a firm belief in the normal, natural process
of birth. I believe that a woman labors best in the safety of
her own home, surrounded by those who care for her most.
My role as a midwife is to facilitate the birthing process in
order to foster the development of healthy families. A midwife
listens to the woman, and attempts to provide her client with
an experience that contributes to the woman's own development,
thus hopefully also impacting on that particular family, and
in a broader sense, society as a whole.
