"You open this can of worms and you've created a monster."

The mother defended herself against the critics, since she revealed that the reason they opted for a home birth was because her nearest hospital with a maternity ward was more than an hour away.
"I think it's important to explain the difference between free birth and home," he said.
& # 39; Homebirth is attended by a midwife or doctor, and a free birth is when you do not get help and do not have medical support & # 39;
Ms. Goetze said that, ideally, they would have preferred a midwife, but they had no choice but to choose a free birth because of their location.
"Looking back, it is fortunate that we have prepared for the quick work because Mahli was born 23 minutes after my waters broke," he said.
She admitted that the family prepared with their suitcases full and ready to go to the hospital in case of an emergency.
"But as I said, the waters really broke and she came pretty fast," said Ms. Goetze.
