When I got pregnant for the first time, I started exploring home birth as a serious option. My mother had unmedicated births so I grew up thinking that was the way to go. After lots of research and corresponding with people both in person and online, I decided to give birth at home with a midwife in attendance.

That's when I first encountered the Quiverfull movement.

Salon.com has an interview with a woman who is "no longer quivering".

I have never met any of the Quiverfull women I'm acquainted with in person. I only hope that their lives bear no resemblance to that of Vyckie Garrison or her friend Laura.
