What is Home Birth?

Rebecca Pugh presents a program on the safety and security of birthing at home. Come to the library for a compelling discussion regarding the differences between home and hospital birth. Many of us don't realize that birthing at home with a licensed midwife is a safe, legal, affordable and popular option. The midwifery model of care is based on individualized care, prevention of complications and the belief that birth is a normal, natural process that requires little medical intervention. A brief description of home birth and its general practices will be followed by a lively question and answer session. Bring your questions and concerns for Rebecca, who is a registered midwife. Wilkinson Public Library, 6 p.m.
