Hi there! I wondered over here after reading homebirth stories late last night and could not wait to post a hello!!
I am currently part of a due in board on another message board that is nothing but elective and repeat Csections...so yeah, I had to exit
This is final baby #7 for us AND my first homebirth...kind of excited about that! Our last was born at the free standing birth center 20 minutes from here (all others were hospital and induced)...close location, but not close enough, we got there with 5 minutes to spare and he was (thankfully!) born in the water! I said never again will I labor IN THE CAR while driving frantically, that was no fun!! SO home it is!!
I have an AWESOME amazing hands off midwife who has helped me learn to trust myself/body. This last birth gave me so much confidence as a mother.
I am also a DONA trained birth doula, but it has been many years since I practiced...I've been busy *ROFLMBO*
6 kids ages 12, 9 (autistic) ,7,5,almost 3 and 17 months.
And yes number seven is our last
I am 32, an artist, and dh is a massage therapist...yes I am one lucky pregnant girl
We AP, BF, TRY and eat only organic (can't always afford it!) we cloth diaper, co sleep, are against vax & circ'ing and we baby wear.
nice to meet you all!
