I'm Shelby, 33yrs old and SAHM, independent midwifery student, and homeschool teacher to my 5 fantastic children. Dh Derick (who is 31 and a Wireless Telecommunications Engineer) and I have been married for 12 years and are currently expecting baby #6 in Mid January. (EDD 1/13) We live in Northern VT.
We have had 2 mc's, one in Oct of'97 at 6weeks, and one in Feb of 04,around 6-8wks which turned out to be a twin pregnancy, and we went on to carry the other twin to 42weeks, with no problems. (this was Bruce)
Our clan include
:s: our oldest son, Briar, age 9 9/22/98 Posterior born water-birth after a 26hr labor in a birthcenter.
Oldest daughter, Brieanna, age 8 11/24/99 Dry-land birth in a hosp, 12hr labor(I know, what was I thinking!!)
son, Braeden age 5 10/23/02 Posterior water-birth 9hr labor in a birthcenter
son, Bruce age 3 11/23/04 Compound Presentation 9hr labor,UC Home Waterbirth
Daughter Brooklynne age 2 4/21/06 9hr labor UC homebirth in the shower.
Everyone was birthed without meds of any kinnd, everyone has shared the family bed, been breastfed, non-vaccinated and homeschooled. We are planning another UC homebirth for #6 and would like a girl so that we have 3 of each, but we'll be waiting for the birthday to find out what we have been blessed with. Good thing we're used to both.
Best of luck and Blessed journeys to you all!
