Celebration and not a "Cure"

My husband and I chose a midwife and a birthing center to have our baby because the more visits we made to our OB/GYN, the more we felt like we were being treated as "sick" and needing to get better. When we went to the birthing center, it was a completely different experience. The midwives were so excited for us and couldn't wait to CELEBRATE the birth of our daughter with us! It was so refreshing! They made us feel completely at home, shared all of our choices with us and helped us make an informed decision about how we chose to bring our daughter into the world. She is due any day, I am not scared, I am ecstatic. I can't wait to meet her, I can't wait to have a midwife by my side for support with my husband, and I can't wait to teach her about how a midwife helped me deliver.
