Unassisted Homebirth

...for Husbands/Fathers

A page devoted to Fathers and Birth. In particular- Unassisted Homebirth!

Welcome to my Unassisted Homebirth page!

I would like to share my experience with the unassisted homebirth of our fifth child and other information that I hope will prompt other men to consider this option. Men father a child in conception but are all too often forced to be mere outside, non-participant observers to the birth of that child. Whether by design or by accident I think that's wrong and a shame.

It should be understood that giving birth without the presence of doctors or midwives should not be undertaken lightly. Educate yourself about childbirth, diet and exercise before you decide to give birth at home and you'll find that you can actually be safer at home than at the hospital...and far more satisfied!

Here is my story.
