The Red Tent was a hideaway that women in ancient Christian culture retreated to during their periods or to give birth.

Welcome to The Birth Hour! In this episode, Indiana Adams, blogger, conference planning guru and budding podcaster shares her well known birth stories. She has had three homebirths, and none of them have been void of excitement. I'll break it down for you in short form by hitting on the highlights.
First Birth - Precipitous labor, homebirth, washcloth of modesty.
Second Birth - Even MORE precipitous, unassisted, the toilet is a major player.
Third Birth - Unaware of baby's presence until 17 weeks gestation, natural induction at home, STILL precipitous.
You'll have to listen to Indiana tell it in her own words on this episode of The Birth Hour.
