Lynn Griesemer, mom of 6 and author of Unassisted Homebirth: An Act of Love is my guest this week.
Lynn joins us this week to talk about women who choose to go it alone – giving birth without the assistance of a Doctor or Midwife.
Why do some moms choose this path? What are the benefits? How does a couple prepare for unassisted homebirth? What challenges do couples who choose unassisted birth face?
Lynn also shares information about her Childbirth Success Kit which is available for purchase on her website.
While an unassisted birth may not be for everyone, Lynn’s experience and those of other unassisted birthers show that it is the right choice for some… and this topic is great for opening dialogue about our cultural ideas around birth.

p.s. You may notice some minor audio editing flaws in this and last week’s show. I’m doing my own show editing and am not nearly as talented as my V.A. so bear with me as I figure this thing out!
