Hello everyone, my name is Katie, and I live in Cincinnati, Ohio and this is my husband Richard and my first child, second pregnancy!
We just bought a house, and we have been fixing it up and just as we put in the faucet we found out we were pregnant!!
We would love to have a home birth but in Ohio CPMS are not regulated, I have joined a group here in Cincinnati, but it is a little more difficult. So if any of you mothers are from Cincinnati, or know some midwives in Cincinnati that would be great!! Thanks so much everyone!
I have several links you might find useful to get you started in areas of Mothering that might interest you:
You might like to join a Due Date Club. http://www.mothering.com/community/a/join-a-due-date-club
And we have a Finding Your Tribe area you might like to ask your Ohio-specific question in. http://www.mothering.com/community/f/80/indiana-ohio-michigan
There's a forum called I'm Pregnant about general pregnancy issues. http://www.mothering.com/community/f/19/im-pregnant
And then a forum all about homebirth: http://www.mothering.com/community/f/20/homebirth
And then you said that this is your first child but second pregnancy, so maybe the Pregnancy and Birth Loss forum would be someplace you'd like for support: http://www.mothering.com/community/f/22/pregnancy-and-birth-loss
If there's anything else you need help finding, please let me know! And congratulations on your pregnancy!
