The gorgeous Melanie Rosen with Ben (6), Henry (4) and Adeline "Addie" (15 mos). Melanie had a great first pregnancy but her delivery was tough. She delivered in hospital with an OB and had an episiotomy and 4th degree tearing leading to a very difficult postpartum period. Melanie had an early miscarriage after Ben. With Henry she switched to a hospital midwifery practice at the beginning and then half way through switched to a homebirth provider. Melanie had Henry in her mother's home which was her childhood home. During this time, her mother was also dying of breast cancer. Melanie delivered Henry in her mother's bed which is where her grandmother was also born and where her mother died two months later. Melanie stayed with the same midwife for Addie's birth and had another very positive experience. She has since become a doula herself and is training to become a childbirth educator.
