Unbound Birth
How To Have A Natural Birth In The Hospital

It’s hard to tell much about someone’s personality by just reading their blog… so I’ll just tell you straight: I’m a very quiet person.  I’ll often over think something so much the opportunity to say it is long past.  I couldn’t let this book pass by without sharing my heart on this issue.

My online friend Jenny Yarbrough from The Southern Institute recently released her first ebook: Unbound Birth.

Often I think women are uninformed of their birthing options.  God is not a God of fear, please don’t be afraid of birth and choose a medicated birth because of that fear.  A little education goes a long way.  This book by Jenny is such a helpful resource; a quick read and great way to be informed.

It really is simple.  God created women to give birth.  The majority of the time our bodies do not need assistance in doing this.  My first baby’s birth was a natural, unmedicated, hospital birth.  Minutes after his birth a nurse came to my room with some pills and asked me “On a scale of 1 to 10 how much pain are you in?” I looked at her funny because my answer was “none”.  The birth was over, the pushing was done, why would I be in any pain?  I was on a baby high… for like a year!  Seriously.

In the history of the earth, for {many} more years than not, women have been giving birth naturally.  I decided for the births in my life, I was going to follow the crowd, that crowd of natural birthing women.

My husband and I read plenty of books, took the Bradley Birth classes and felt we did our part to education ourselves on this process.  My mom had 4 unmedicated births, my friends were having and planning natural births and some even natural home births.  I had a great support system around me encouraging me the whole time.  After such great success with my natural hospital birth we choose my second baby’s birth to be a home water birth.  If I can do this, I know you can.

Unbound Birth retails for $4.99 for your Kindle, Nook or in PDF format.
Unbound Birth is also on Facebook and Twitter.

    I so agree … my first was a natural hospital birth ( more by circumstance than by choice) – but it was the BEST all around birth experience of the 3 … although not having to go through labor with Miriam was kindda nice (LOL) – but the fear was there because the baby & my body were forced into action by a scheduled c-section. Thankfully, she was fine – but I had the fear you talk about God not wanting us to have.

      It’s so interesting how everyone has such unique and different birth stories! My two are almost exactly identical just a different setting. SO thankful for those doctors skillful hands and Miriam’s safe entry into your arms! She’s a beautiful little girl! (I wish our two little ones could play sometime and we could chat in person!!)

    I planned and hoped for an unmedicated birth, but when the pain got so intense I was vomiting (violently), I opted for an epidural. Definitely NOT disagreeing with you but everyone’s birth experiences are different.

      Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving a comment! I agree, I’m so glad you brought this up! Everyone is unique and no births are even close the same. I’m so so so thankful for the knowledge, skill and medicine of doctors and hospitals! They have such a valuable place and when we need them it’s a comfort to know they can do so much. I don’t know you’re birth story but that’s wonderful you were able to find relief from an epidural. I’m sorry if I offended you in any way, that was not my intention at all. I have no medical training, just a passion to help women know there are other birth options out there if there are interested.
