I have been fascinated with homebirthing since I was like 8 (my moms friend had a home birth and I was hooked on the idea)! I have started my phone interviews with midwives and am doing my first official interview tomorrow with a midwife team!
My first 2 births were quick, natural hospital births with no interventions or complications. Since this will be my last birth I am determined that it will be a homebirth. And actually my last labor was 2 hours start to finish so I am a little concerned about even making it to a hospital this time anyway!
The last time I was pregnant I was in another DDC on a different website. There were about 17 of us due that month. Of the 17 I think 14 ended up with inductions (with MANY of them leading to c-sections) and of the other 3 who had vaginal births I was the only one with a natural birth (Oh yeah, and I went 13 days past my due date)! They just didn't "get" why I wouldn't induce! I was so sad to watch their births become something so traumatic when it could have been so peaceful.
So, it is sooo nice to be on a forum this time with other mommas who get it!!
