Rica earlier shared a Facebook post, explaining why she opted to give birth at home.
Part of her post says: “So really, if I were to rank births, caesarian or a highly medicalized birth is last on the list of what I think to be the best birth possible. And the first would be homebirth, in the presence of all your loved ones and a birthing team who are willing to do everything possible to make it their first choice to trust God’s intelligent design for our bodies.
This is not to say that I am not grateful for the way science has advanced our knowledge when it comes to births, as these highly surgical procedures have no doubt saved many lives already. But the sad truth is that this method hasn’t been used only for TRUE emergency purposes but more abused for reasons of convenience, money, and the gravest reason of all: A MISTRUST FOR GOD’S DESIGN FOR BIRTHING BABIES.”
