Birth Stories


Sacopee Midwives take special care to understand the unique needs of our clients. Here are some links to their birth stories. Sharing birth stories is a time-honored tradition. Since it is now rare to hear our ancestors' birth stories as we grow up, it is especially important for us to hear and read birth stories. Positive birth stories, even if the birth did not go as planned, help people to believe, "Yes, birth works, babies come out. I can do this, too."

Sharing stories of home births also helps families who are planning a home birth either for their first or subsequent children, to get an idea of the variety of ways birth can happen at home.
