Homebirthing Mama Thread (All Due Dates)! - Page 6

Jumping in, too! I'm due 10/26 with my second baby. My first was born in a birth center, and this will be my first homebirth. It's a kind of last-minute change in plans, but I'm excited!

Hi - add me to the list! Mid-April EDD (choosing not to know the date). This will be our 3rd child & 3rd homebirth!

Count me in here too.

I'm due October 4th with my second: 1st was a section due to breech presentation very late in the game AND I lost all my fluid at 38 weeks mysteriously. ANYHOOO...

This one, if she stays vertex, will be born at home away from the craziness of the hospital. I'm very very excited, although she keeps flipping (one week breech, the next vertex...) Wish me luck.

hey ladies,

this will be our second homebirth. the first one was great, beautiful and long. but peaceful. Our first one was in geogia where the law is not completly on your side. Now we live in colorado and have 2 wonderful midwives. One with 25 years of experiance and the other with 15.

I was born at home 25 years ago in colorado and the one with more experiance actually used to work with the woman who caught me. Small world. I am excited about this new adventure in my life. Any advice out there with having your older child around? I think it will be a wonderful experiance for him. Just some feedback from those who have already been through it would be helpful. We are due Dec 27th 5more months to go

Would like this advice too, esp. for toddler/preschool aged kids.

Saphron, where abouts are you? I'm newish to CO and just found out that some of the MDC mommies get together every-other Saturday at Central Park. Tomorrow, actually. There's a thread for it in the Find Your Tribe area. =)

As for having toddlers at the birth, I plan to have DS with me when this one comes along. From what I've read and people I've talked to, preparing the child is very important with videos and books. And having someone there to act as the child's doula, to explain what's going on and leave with the child if the child doesn't want to be there. My MW specifically asked that we have someone there for DS. The kid doula has to be prepared that s/he isn't there to watch the birth, but to take care of your DC and that may mean leaving exactly when things are getting "good".

I think it might be time for a new thread, too!

We've hired our midwife, and I have my first prenatal appointment on Sept. 9th. I'm very excited about our midwife. She teaches a birth class for her homebirth parents in their last trimester, so we can meet other homebirthing couples. So cool!
