Hi Ladies,


I am new here. I am not pregnant as of yet but plan on soon or in the coming months. I have two boys - D1 will be 3 in a months and DS2 is 13 months old. My first was a unnessisary csection and second was a very chaotic vbac. My birth stories are here:


I want my third to be very much different than the first two and much gentler on my baby and I. I am planning on a UC. In the last two months I have read: HypnoBirthing, Orgasmic Birth, Unassisted Childbirth, and Birthkeepers. I've previuosly read: Gentle Birth, Gentle Mothering, Ina May's Guild to Childbirth, Birthing from Within. I am currently waiting for Emergency Childbirth to arrive in my mailbox this week!


I have also purchased some essential oils and plan on building up my cabinet with them throughout the year and leading up to a birth.


I love my home and want my boys to be apart of this birth, like I wanted with my last birth. I live 20 minutes from a hospital though, which I'm a little unsure about. I have an amazing husband and my doula has become my best friend. I plan on taking midwife appointments throughout just to have a midwife for backup instead of an OB.


I guess, the next step is to get pregnant, lol. I just want to learn as much as I can.

Welcome! I'm pretty new in here, too. I'm pregnant with my 5th and am planning my first unassisted birth around the 4th of July when I'm due. Like you, I am wanting for a much different experience than my prior births. We've read many of the same books and I just bought and finished Emergency Childbirth. Awesome book! Good luck on your journey smile.gif
