Since I tend to focus more on the negative aspects of hospital birth, I’d like to balance that perspective a bit by linking to this beautiful birth story, told by the family physician who attended the birth. Here is the opening paragraph, to whet your appetite:
I attended an amazingly beautiful birth last week. This is the second birth for this couple and I attended their first as well. This couple does an amazing job of taking over and creating their own atmosphere in the hospital—to the point that the nurses and I feel almost bad intruding on them, yet they are so sweet and pleasant that you want to be with them. It’s hard to describe, but basically there is like a bubble of personal space around them.
