Hello everyone, I am new to the community. I am hoping to make some friends and get some great advice. I am expecting number two in March and planning to do a home birth. If anyone has any words of encouragement or advice, it will be greatly appreciated. All I am getting here from family and friends are smirks and less than helpful remarks. Nice to meet all of you and look foreword to all your words of encouragement and advice.

Hi and welcome! I had homebirths with babies 3 & 4 after 2 hospital births - the homebirths were wonderful experiences.

I'd post in the Homebirth forum for more specific support. If you find your Due Date Club, that would be a good place to post as well (they are also a lot of fun!).

Glad you are here and hope you find what you are looking for at MDC!

I know how you feel about the smirks and remarks. My mom wouldn't even tell me she had issues with our homebirth, she went around asking my friends why I was doing it! Congrats on your decision, you're gonna LOVE it!!!

WELCOME!!! =)
Oh, BEST of luck to you and your home birth! I wanted to do one but with my blood pressure being insanely high at the end of my first pregnancy we chose to have our second at the hospital with our nurse mid-wife (just in case...). =) But they were both med-free! =) So proud of that! *giggle*
Nice to meet you,
~*April*~
