I delivered all my children.  A midwife (or two) were in attendance but they 
were instructed and agreed not to intervene unless they saw a reason to.  They 
didn't.  I have also attended about 25 other births as an assistant because I 
can cook, lift a pregnant woman with one arm, and various bodily fluids going 
in all directions don't bother me in the least.  All of these were 
homebirths, by far and away the safest childbirth.
