I am also a homebirth client of Cilia's, and gave birth to a healthy 6 pound, 2 ounce baby boy on May 22, 2000, at home, with no complications. Having used the Support myself, I can recommend it without reservation to anyone wishing to experience a vertical delivery -- it was very easy to push using the support, and I can't imagine delivering any other way! My son (Stephen Glenn Lewis Andrea) was born after abour an hour of pushing, and I had absolutely no tears, not even a "skidmark," and fully recovered from the birth within a week. It was an incredible experience, and I am grateful that Cilia took me on as a client. If you live in the Seacoast New Hampshire area and are planning a homebirth, I would also recommend her as a midwife -- she is kind, patient, understanding, and very professional all around, and made my son's birth an event I can remember with pride and joy.
