When it comes to how you choose to bring your baby into the world, I'm a firm believer that you should do what works best for you and your family. It could be delivering in a hospital, having a homebirth, having a water birth, going the natural route when it comes to pain management, and so on and so forth.
But after hearing about something called "freebirthing," I can't help but feel the urge to go ahead and put my judgy pants on and get a little preachy. What exactly is freebirthing, you ask? Well, it's giving birth on your own. As in by yourself. As in pushing out a baby without the assistance of doctors, nurses, midwives, or even a doula.
Yes, women are actually doing this -- and raving about their experiences with it.
