At least she had the prenatal checks, there are women who don’t even do that. I believe in homebirths with a qualified midwife in attendance. I was already 8cm by the time I went to the hospital because I refused to risk having them dictate how much time I had before I needed to give birth. I stand by that, but I am also glad I made it to the hospital because my baby was in shock after she was born and needed 2 minutes of oxygen, then a few hours after I gave birth I haemorrhaged. Every labour is so different and you just never know. Glad baby and mum are healthy though.
