"I wanted that experience of bringing life into the world, just me. And I guess I feel guilty, for going to the hospital. For that being stolen from me. I wanted that experience of--I wanted it to be more pure, I guess. It was muddied. It was muddied by all their protocols. And nothing about my birth was safe at all. In a place that values safety so much. Nothing about it was safe."
