I am so thankful I had midwives who absolutely respected my autonomy during my pregnancy and the birth of my first child. I am confident that I would have had an “emergency” cesarean had I been birthing in a hospital or even assisted by any other midwife in my city, yet my girl was born healthy and I ultimately had no real complications. My heart hurts for the many women who are not so fortunate.
