Hi everyone,

I'm Sarah, married to Eric for 6 years and mama to 3 year old Andrew. I am currently 41 weeks pregnant and planning on a homebirth. Andrew was cloth diapered and a self-weaned nurser at just over 2 years. I am looking for a supportive community as I am sure I will have a lot of questions with my new little person on the way.

Sarah

Hi Sarah!

I am new to the MDC and also live in Michigan. I have three kids, Nolan, 4, Gillian, 3, and Sadie, 18 mos. They were all born at home. I hope that you have a great experience with this birth.

Where do you live? We are in Plymouth.

Best Wishes to you and your family on your new addition!!
Warmly,
Jessica
