Following close on the heels of ann030, I also wanted to say a quick hello.
I also found this forum quite recently and combed through some previous posts which were very helpful. Thanks for creating such a reassuring, supportive (and well-informed!) group. I've learned a lot from the posts and particularly appreciated some of the older threads about preparing a sibling for homebirth, links to kid-friendly birth videos, etc.
My DD will be 3 this weekend and I'm both overjoyed and over-nervous about the prospect of being a mom to two. It's been great to hear how many of you have managed this transition so successfully.
I live in Vancouver and am hoping for a second homebirth. I'm due March 10 with another daughter.
I'm a grad student and my "leave" starts at the end of the month, so hoping to have more time soon to post/share instead of just lurking/tapping your collective wisdom.
Congrats to the mamas who gave birth today and looking forward to hearing more happy news very soon...
And of course thanks to ann030 for getting the ball rolling with tonight's first newbie introduction. We're practically neighbours!
All the best to you mamas! Take care.
