Hi I am a SAHM of four. I am currently 25 weeks pregnant with no. 5.

I have known about UC for a few years, but never seriously considered it.
I am finally taking the plunge, and my DH is fully supportive.
I have read all the materials I can get my hands on, and I couldn't imagine going to a hospital now.

I have had four "natural" hospital births, with no meds, or complications. (I do have some bad memories though. e.g 1st baby being cut from cord and whisked away because of meconium, and at 2nd birth my cord being pulled on. ouch!) I always thought it was all 'necessary' but now I feel that I was robbed of something by not being able to bond with my baby right away. (especially the first!)

I look forward to gaining wisdom and experience from you all!

I have told no-one about my UC plans, there really isn't anyone I can tell.
So I really appreciate this board.

Welcome! Congratulations on your pregnancy! It's so exciting!
I'm also expecting my fifth baby (in December) ... this will be my second unassisted birth. I had two medical/hospital births, one natural hospital birth (is that an oxymoron? LOL) and one UC water birth. You can guess which was best!
