Natural Birth.
Posted by By: Dr. Laura Berman on January 16 2018

Dr. Berman I have one of those hippy, spiritual, kind of out there friend’s whom I adore.  She is 6 months pregnant and just told a few of us closest to her that she is going to do a natural water birth at home with a mid-wife.  She wants it to be peaceful and to welcome a child into a warm and loving environment rather than a “sterile cold hospital”.  I have no problem with that. My issue is that she wants a few of us there for the birthing and to participate/help.  I get queasy when I cut myself shaving- there is no way in hell I can watch a baby come out of my friend.  I want to support her… But this is kind of a deal breaker... what do I do here?  I know she really wants us there, but I don’t think I can stomach it.
