I gave birth at home accidentally too. Thankfully my husband was there. Not so thankfully, he completely panicked when he saw her head sticking out of my vagina as I peacefully reclined against the legs of our love seat. (Thank god for endorphins is all I have to say.) One push later and she was fully birthed and I was deep in a blissful dopamine-endorphin cocktail where I knew no pain as he gently laid her on my tummy and cried waiting for the ambulance to arrive.

Mot any fearful moms I’ll say this: I barely glanced at the What To Expect home birth page and to this day have no clue what it says. You will know what to do when the time is right and your body is much stronger than you think. I made up some beautifully imaginative curses with those last contractions but as soon as she was born, all pain ended. You’ll be okay sweetie. I promise.
