I was reading updates on twitter this morning and came across a tweet by @parentsmagazine with a link to an article called Home Birth – I Don’t Get it by Jill Cordes. I know that this topic can be quite controversial and I don’t want to get into a debate over a home birth vs. a hospital birth. However, I do know that there are a lot of unknowns when it comes to labour and birth.

Even with the best prenatal care you still don’t know 100% that you will have an uneventful birth or a healthy baby. Case and point: my pregnancy with Bronson. My pregnancy was uneventful with no morning sickness (sorry I’m one of “those people” who don’t get sick while I’m pregnant, yes, you can hate me for that!), other than a 24 hour flu bug there was nothing else significant to report. All of the ultrasounds were completely normal. But, we still ended up with a baby who was born with cancer.
