    Yeah, these pregnant women in the rural areas don't have access to hospital or doctors, their only option is midwives. There have been a huge plots of land mapped out for hospital construction in my village but it's over 10 years and nothing yet has been done on that land. So the women are dealing with midwives and should one get seriously ill, they normally go to the neighboring village for hospital treatment.

    It's so sad to hear about the state of health care in your area. I hope things improve soon :)

    Nothing to worry really. In the good old days including my mother and my oldest sister went in for that. My mother produced 9 healthy children and my sister 5. What is important is a knowledgeable midwife and hygiene.

    @Elsa That has been our prayers for a long time now, although there has been a change in the government lately, so we are hopeful that with the new administration running things, we might get lucky and have at least a clinic built for us.

    @iamawriter You are quite correct about the knowledge of these midwives, they are so versed in the skill of child delivery because if not, there would have been a lot of cases reported against them in my town.

    Oh, I absolutely agree. Contacting a midwife would be best, I'm sure she'll go through all of it and check for anything she needs if she's really going for it. iamawriter has a great point, I can definitely see mothers being more comfortable at home.

    As long as these midwives have a good track record of successful deliveries, definitely mothers are going to be more comfortable having them deliver their babies with their assistance. And coupled with someone's home being their comfort zone, it's certainly going to help them relax more.

    Yes, I am not sure in other countries, but nowadays the hospitals here use many not so natural ways to help a mom to deliver the baby, including using pain killers, epidural, vacuum, etc, where moms should be able to deliver baby naturally unless complications. That's why some people choose to home birth.

    The truth is that no one ever knows the nature of child birth she is going to experience at the point delivery, that's why it's advised to plan for anything including cesarean as well because anything can happen. It's the fortunate mothers that deliver like the Hebrew woman just as the scriptures said.
