Hello- Can I join?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi!  My name is Meagan, I am a 24 year old second time mama with one Dd who will be in one week and #2 on the way in October of this year.  With Dd I was obviously very young and although I wanted a homebirth I lived with my parents and went to the hospital because my dad asked me to and I respected his wishes.  I ended up with a pretty decent birth experience minus the pit (because my water had been broken over 24 hours and it was hospital policy) and an epi (I gave in to shut the nurse and everyone else up, seriously the nurse came in every 5 minutes to ask if I was sure I didn't want one...). 

 

This time around Dh and I are married and the baby was planned.  We are living half a world away from our family in Texas thanks to the Army stationing us in Hawaii and are planning a homebirth with this little one.  Dd and I are actually in Texas now staying with family while I student teach and I am seeing my old ob while I am here, we go back *home* May 21st and I will see my midwife after that.

 

That's about it, I hope it's okay that I join!

Welcome, mama!  You are most welcome here. I hope you have a beautiful pregnancy and that you find a MW in HI that you trust and click with.

Thank you!

 

Oahu is weird because I really only have one choice (2 midwives) of a homebirth practice that I  have found, even though it is such a densely populated area.  I had a phone interview with one of the midwives in February and we really seemed to click over the phone.  Now that I have booked mine and Dd's tickets back I am calling back today to make my first official appointment.
