RODRIGUEZ FEIJOO, Ana Belén. The "peixet": The experience of giving birth at home. Index Enferm [online]. 2009, vol.18, n.1, pp.57-60. ISSN 1699-5988.

Interview that occupies to us, bases on experience lived by pair (Elia and Daniel) who wanted to live the childbirth of their first daughter (Illary) of the possible most natural form, for that reason decided that it was born at home. Their access to institutions or professionals (midwives) who helped them to make their desire, it was relatively easy to live in an autonomous community (Cataluña) in which the supply with respect to the childbirth at home is superior to other communities within the existing shortage in such scope. After inquiring into the process and the existing supply, they were decided by a specialized association, which was part or the midwife comprised that finally took care of them (real name are omitted). The title given to this history, peixet (translated the Castilian it means the small fish), is due to this being the affectionate nickname given by these parents to their daughter, when taking place the birth in the water. Their final valuation of the childbirth is positive, wishing to repeat it, in spite of the economic cost and of the lack of support and social understanding.
