For me, childbirth is based on confidence in life, in oneself and in one’s body, in one’s baby and in one’s family, and towards the people who accompany us. Because of their specialty, their humanity, because they believe that any childbirth must be experienced with respect, calm, confidence and free choice, midwives were the only professionals to accompany me on this wonderful journey. At my first birth, having just moved into my new home, I had chosen to go to the birth center, especially since the possibility of a water birth interested me enormously. Finally, after several hours, I had to be transferred to the hospital. My experience of accompaniment in both settings then encouraged me to experience my second birth at home, with my whole family, which was for me one of the most enriching experiences of my entire life.
