EDD: August 24
Name: Holly
Age: 23
Location: NJ... we've been living here a little over a year; Baltimore, MD is home.
Family: DH Chris (27) and three insane cats
Baby's Gender (hopes or guesses): BOY!!
Names you like: He's definitely Caleb. We're undecided on a middle name, and probably will be until the last minute (or later!)
Birth Plans/Preferences: I'll be delivering at a hospital with a decent reputation for supporting natural births, with an OB that I'm a bit worried about. Meeting with potential doulas this week and hoping that'll be enough to give me the intervention-free birth I want.
Strangest craving/aversion this pregnancy: No aversions, thankfully. Have craved orange juice and tomato sauce since the first tri.
Occupation: I'm currently teaching preschool... Not sure whether I'm going back once I have the baby.
How you met your SO: At the beach after HS graduation <3
How you ended up at MDC: Have heard about it for years; I was just waiting to get knocked up

I love the name Caleb

How did your doula interviews go? What kind of natural birth support does the hospital you are delivering at offer - like birthing tubs, stools, etc?

I was in Baltimore in March for my best friend's wedding... I really enjoy visiting that city!

We met with one doula and her back-up, and they were both GREAT! I'm so so excited now for the birth. Meeting with another next week- she's been out of the country.

The hospital allows for birthing tubs, but I'll have to rent my own. I've heard great things about the nursing staff, there are LCs on hand and a ton of BFing support, and there are a few midwife groups that deliver there.
