She Was in Labor but Refused to Go to the Hospital. Here Is What Happened…

I can’t think of anything more close to a miracle than the miracle of birth. Most women go to the hospital once their contractions are close enough but a growing number of women are deciding to choose natural childbirth for their baby.

One woman, Erin Loechner, was determined to give birth to her baby daughter in her home and the fact that she shared her birth with the world is incredible. It wasn’t easy but she went through every step without epidurals or pain medication and you’ll be amazed every step of the way.

Erin’s contractions begin at 8 am.
