Mums-to-be reassured by Kate Marsh, Midwifery Manager at Tommy’s
Midwifery Manager at Tommy’s, Kate Marsh, answers common questions relating to free-birthing, from Bounty mums-to-be who are due to give birth and are concerned about the availability of home births
Several Bounty mums-to-be have contacted us to find out what happens if they choose to give birth at home during the coronavirus outbreak.
Here Kate Marsh answers two popular free-birthing questions for Bounty mum-to-be:
"I’ve read lots about women free-birthing and having their babies unassisted at home. My first baby was born in under 4 hours and his birth was straight-forward so could free-birthing be an option for me?"
"I gave birth unexpectedly to my second son at home on the kitchen floor with just a neighbour to help her so could I try free-birthing?"
