Homebirth to Hospital Transfer Birth Story

Heather shares her experience laboring and pushing at home until her midwife noticed her baby’s heart tones were not recovering after contractions while Heather pushed. She was rushed to the hospital and the ER doctor on call gave her one chance to push with forceps before being taken in for a cesarean birth. Her son was born with that one push and she describes her hospital experience as being very positive. They spent one night at the hospital before heading home.
