I think what has been scary is friends who delivered here saying they requested to wait but were aggressively handled to rapidly deliver the placenta.

After a homebirth I know the midwife is there for a while, but how long? I had checks every 2 hours for 24 hours to see id my uterus was shrinking by kneading my belly. What is done for that?
