DIY Home Birth
I admit I'd probably be too chickenshit to ever try this, and I know this kind of thing tends to send a lot of people into hysterical lectures on safety and allowing your ideals to endanger a baby and how horrible and unnatural and scary and dangerous and inherently medicalized birth is......but........I still love the idea that you could defy all of that and let birth return to something that's natural and painful and exciting and scary and a normal event in the life of a family after all. And I admire the people who are brave enough to drown out the voices that our culture has planted in their heads and do it anyway. That's all.
