Description

Brooke is an American living in Cape Town. When her contractions began they were already 3minutes apart and in some disbelief, she called the midwife. There was no time for her husband to set up the birthing pool so Brooke birthed her daughter in her bathtub. Brooke never thought she would have a home birth as it's not that common in America, however, she is so thankful she did. Please visit the website for resources about breastfeeding.
