want to know what the world of birth around you looks like? Take a deeper look than your local birthing center or hospital. check out http://www.mdch.state.mi.us/pha/osr/index.asp?id=2 for state and county birthing trends, the c-section rate for the state is 32.5% only slightly below average. but when given a trial of labor the rate goes down to 11.6. Give your county a check up and see how it is doing. your hospital rate is important but so is your individual doctors rate, don’t be scared to check on that with your doctor!

My name is Samantha Mehaffey, I'm a wife and a mother of four. My husband served in the Military for 8 years and during that time I birthed two of my five children and served a few people as a volunteer doula, now he is working in the civilian world and we've added a third and fourth and fifth child (all born at home) and I've increased my business and gotten certified through DONA, and now I’m working toward becoming a midwife. I LOVE this job almost as much as I love raising my children. Bringing babies into the world through prayer and helpful relaxation techniques is the best feeling in the world!
