THE BIRTH

THE BIRTH

Home births can be a risky business, particularly if your partner is a bloke on a mission.

THE BIRTH

At the end of a long gestation, it’s delivery time. Everyone is primed for the new arrival. But when an optimistic young couple embark on a natural water birth, the birthing plan quickly goes out the window as unexpected complications develop for our new mother. Everyone warned her about home births, but nothing quite prepared her for what she’d have to bear.
