I recently started a new blog devoted to my upcoming HB experience and pregnancy and everything related, and I am documenting with journal entries, photos, and video. I've tried searching around some for some like-minded mothering blogs, but not much luck. I would like to bookmark some and keep up with them, especially since I will not be leaving the house much for a while! (and I also have never given birth before-- first-timer!)

Please post your blog links, especially if they have anything to do with pregnancy, homebirth, natural health care, parenting, etc.

Here is mine:

*Warning though--- it may not be suitable for the more conservative mothers out there-- I tend to curse and be relatively uncensored when it comes to discussing drugs, etc.

thanks, mamas!

My husband and I just started a blog for our farm, and I've been posting about our upcoming homebirth, too. Actually, there are only two posts right now, so don't get your hopes up. But I plan to write more about the rest of my pregnancy and our homebirth.

http://passagecreekfarm.blogspot.com/

I should probably be doing something else right now.

Well, not sure if you want to read a past tense one, but I did blog my whole pregnancy. From the intervention ridden beginning to my questioning the medical establishment in the middle to the wonderful homebirth at the end...

I have a blog. It is a homeschooling blog, so I mention my kids a lot. But I do mention my midwife appts, births that I attend, etc. I am a knitter and crocheter, so I post my projects when I complete them. I will be posting my birth story on there.

It is http://www.homeschoolblogger.com/midwifemom/

My blog is more about my babe now, but I did blog about my HB a bit when I was pregnant. You are welcome to check it out: http://babylily.wordpress.com

The Birth Book Blog is kept by author (of The Birth Book) Tina Cassidy and she wrote extensively about her own homebirth (reasons for one, the experience, etc.)- something like 35 entries. It is really inspiring: http://tinacassidy.blogspot.com/

April, wife to Scott, mother to Lily (07/23/08) and furbaby Bella (6/21/04), and expecting baby #2 in February 2012.

Mine's in my signature--I UC'd my first and write about home birth, parenting, breastfeeding, midwifery, etc. Currently expecting #2 and, for the moment, undecided between UC or midwife-attended home birth.
