DESCRIPTION



Hi! For those of you who still don´t know us, we are Kether and Sam. we met in a summer dream of music and vines, whilst working the French grape harvest. At some point the world around us seemed to stop; we looked into each others eyes and our perceptions and emotions converged, tying us with a knot of hope and love that has transcended until today.
Part of that wonderful energy is becoming a baby , a promise of being, inside my womb. as Sam likes saying: we are pregnant, expecting a baby - the fruit of our love- and we would like his coming into the world to be as natural and intimate as possible, without unnecessary interventions.

A little word from Sam;

Soy Samuel


The birth. It was while leaning over the fence of my terrace that the dear feeling of being of thiness came back to me for the last time. A bit like the tip of a pencil dipped in strong glue; which prevents me from printing on paper only pales, frails and softs depressions of gray iris, which are brown, blue or green but never gray.

A page of a novel under the snow, that's what I am. Or newspaper.
But all of this is soaked, wet without anything being subjected to capilarity. It's a feeling that goes up from the back, probably when I rock with the fence, or else. Having liquid moods. Have you ever seen a river forget to flow? It's fantastic, it's one of the most beautiful things; the river is gone but the water remains, it simply sleeps, and its sleep composes nameless things, the unknown of the depths which is disturbed each time a rock is placed under a reflection. Or broccoli in a tree.

A feeling with roots, like algae which find light even under the petals of water lilies, I consider the planet from the top of my terrace. I look with adventure at the mountains and the sky and clench my fists around the pommel of the railing with a furious desire to sow my genetic code on the fly, with a big gesture, even to fertilize the prows of boats.

I'm sure I'm pregnant. When Kether laughs, she pees in her panties and I feel like her, warm, ready to welcome my child. Where does all this love come from? I have the answer in the back. I love it when she yells at me because I burnt the chicken. I love it when she says that my glans smells like shrimp. I love it when she talks and I don't listen and I love it when she doesn't want to give me ice cream.
I want a toga, I want to learn to speak with miracles and put the bad guys in a bull's-eye. I want to see dog paws in the cement of the streets. I want light in my boots. I want to write with children.


WHY do we want to have our baby at HOME?

We believe that childbirth nowadays, even when it is a normal, non risk labour (as is our case) has become (as a rule in many hospitals) excessively manipulated and medicalised, full of protocols created to suit the professionals rather than the mothers and their babies. Therefore because we consider it to be one of the most transedental and intimate experience of our lives , we feel that the most natural thing is to give birth in an environment which supports this wish of actively and consciously taking part in our child´s birthday. What could be better than the warmth of our home , surrounded by love and supervised by an expert midwife to acompany us in such a beautiful natural physiological process.
Both of us believe in Nature´s wisdom to bring living beings into this world and we think it will be a life experience of connection with ourselves, richer and far more complete for the three of us.



MOTIVATIONS



We don´t want to underestimate the work and knowledge of the health professionals whose invaluable help can save lives in emergency and pathological events and we respect those who choose to give birth in hospital as the safest way for themselves. We appreciate their choice as much as ours. Nevertheless we believe that there is a great lack of information about childbirth in the upbringing of our society. Although birth is a completely natural physiological process that in healthy conditions should occur without major interventions by third parties, it is contemplated by many mothers and fathers with fear or as an emergency situation. The technical documentation that concerns the physiology of pregnancy, childbirth and any complications that may arise is available to anyone who is interested and by reading and appliying it, it can turn the process of giving birth into a much more complete and encouraging experience for women.



With this action we also want to join the movement that claims the autonomy of human beings over their own bodies and in particular the right of mothers to make informed decisions about how and where they want to give birth.



This crowdfunding is aimed at family members, friends and every person, entity, NGO, collective, etc. who wants to support our home birth and the movement in general that claims the right to choose freely how and where to give birth. And anyone who wants to come in touch with this way of conceiving birth.



GOALS



The W.H.O. has confirmed that a normal birth at home is less expensive for the NHS than a hospital birth - normal home births are also as safe as normal hospital births. Our choice to have a baby at home with the help of a midwife is not covered by the Spanish NHS , as it is in other countries (England, Belgium, Norway, Canada, etc) where it has been covered for decades.
We created this crowdfunding in the hope of recieving help with the expenses of the midwife and material; **so that we can make our dream come true. Having our baby at home, embraced by the family and respecting the natural timing of labour.
We would like to thank, with our heart full of love and joy, all the people that wish to contribute by participating with donations or simply sharing the link. We also hope to be able to help you if it were needed. Please do not hesitate to contact us.
We are so happy to think you will be able to share a moment that for us represents such an exciting and invaluable time in our lives.



EXPERIENCES AND EQUIPMENT



Along with my diploma in nursecare, my experience is my instinct and the experiences of other mothers who have shared their process of pregnancy and birth with me; invaluable information provided by individuals and groups about natural childbirth and home birth;
My own mother, friends, midwives, doulas, organisations... Briefly, mostly women who claim their autonomy and still keep a simple trustfull relation with their own bodies, self-confidence and ancestral instinctive knowledge that resides in each one of us.
I have studied and helped myself to a wide range of information on numerous websites (www.daraluz.es; indiebirth.org; www.elpartoesnuestro.es; parteres.noblogs.org; www.parirenlibertad.org; etc.), a diploma in nursing and numerous books, videos and documentaries of which some I mention below:
Books: *Active birth.* *Hipnoparto.* *Spiritual midwivery.* *Por un parto sin violencia.* *Pariremos con placer.* *The placenta, the forgotten chakra*.* The baby is a mammal.*, among others.
Documentary: * Birth Story Ina May Gaskin.* *Orgasmic Birth. *
Youtube: natural home birth, home birth, self-managed birth, unnasisted birth. (Many mothers who share their experiences)**


SOCIAL COMMITMENT



I will be publishing the video of my birth in able to add it to those, very instructive ones, of other mothers who eager to promote the bliss of a a birth at home have shared their own. I also want to collaborate in the documentation of what i believe is such an important matter . In addition, with my experience, I will be able to support and inform other women who feel that natural birth or homebirth is better suited to their needs . Every call I have made to an experienced person who supported me has been like a breath of fresh air to me.


Thank you.
