What is Free birthing? please help answer the question!
In recent months I have heard this term used more frequently. This is a new phenomena for me, "Free birth" or "Free birthing". I am guessing it is the same as an unattended birth, meaning that there is no health professional present. Is this a correct assumption?
These are open questions in an effort to get some answers from the women who choose this option so that i can understand what freebirthing is, you don't know if you don't ask.
What is freebirthing?
What makes women decide to have a freebirth?
How common is freebirthing? Is it becoming a more favourable choice for women?
Are our midwives and obstetricians not meeting the needs of women?
How many women do you know who have had a free birth? or contemplating a free birth?
If anyone knows the answers to these questions, please feel free to comment.
