I'm Imogen, planning a homebirth. This is my first child. I'm due somewhere around June 6. I've heard different dates from different care providers, but I'm choosing to go with the latest date I've been given so I don't get squirrelly if the baby is "late".

I'm Crystal. I'm in Central IL.

 

My EDD is June 26th. I'm expecting this one to be late. I have no idea why I feel that way - I just do.

 

My DS was induced at 4 days past his due date. The birth was very medicated and medically managed. I'd like to change things this time around. This will be my first home birth. I have a lovely home birth midwife lined up and she'll bring an assistant with her. I'm hoping to birth naturally in a birthing pool at home.

 

On Tuesday I'm starting a class called Baby Body Birth, which focuses on natural childbirth and a healthy pregnancy.

 

My DS is a vivacious, energetic, and slaphappy 3 1/2 year old. He rocks my world!

Crystal, I vaguely remember you from when you joined the AP/CP group. It's funny who you "see" around. :)

 

Shell, thanks! I dyed the trim myself. They're for a trade. If your Bradley class is as good as ours, you're going to love it. It absolutely made the difference in my birth. It really gave DH the tools to support me.

I'd be up for this. I think we should try to get buddies who are relatively close to our dates, but not necessarily on the date.

I'm due with my second on June 1 or 2 (I like to say 2) but DS was 3 weeks early so I'm not sure if I'll even make it to June. My first was a barely-made-it-to-the-hospital birth with a CNM, and this time I am planning a homebirth with a CPM.

Oh, and I'm in the upper midwest.

Let's all write our due dates and some other basic info, and then we can get an idea of the people who want due date buddies and pair up accordingly!

 

I'm Kristin

 

EDD 6/24 (but DS was a month early, so I'm expecting to be early again)

 

This is my second child

 

I'm in Pennsylvania

 

DS was a non-medicated, natural hospital birth.

 

I plan to have a non-medicated, natural hospital birth this time also (stupid Pennsylvania and it's laws pratically outlawing midwives...grrr)


both painefaria and i are also in pa and planning hbs (mine will be an hbac). so it can be done. what part of pa are you in?

This sounds fun.

 

I'm Nikki

 

EDD 6/19

 

This is my third child.  First was a disaster labour ending in a c-section, second was much smoother, non-medicated and ending in a VBAC.

 

Hoping for a medication-free labour again this time, in the hospital at my midwife's insistance due to risk of rupture, hoping to labour in the tub to help with pain. =)

I'd love to have a buddy

I'm Nikki

 

EDD:6/14 This is our third child and hopefully will be our second homebirth. We are undecided as of yet and probably right up to the moment of labor on whether we will UC or not, but it is a possibility.

 

We're currently living in beautiful Oregon If being local is important to anyone

we're in Lancaster. My midwife is from Md (b/c I couldn't find a local one to attend a HBAC), but Painefaria's is local. I would make some calls and try to find someone by you. you can try ICAN or LLL or Bradley/Brio teachers for references. i hope you find a midwife you love! i'll ask my midwife if she knows of anyone up there. best of luck.

I will also ask my midwife... I don't see her until the end of the month, but she is active with the PA midwives so she may know someone for you.

I have a friend who is a midwifery apprentice in WV/Morgantown area and she's putting the word out for midwives in your area. She is VERY well-connected with midwives all over WV & PA and she's a great resource. I'll let you know what she finds out!

And without further ado (or wait, my apologies!) here are the buddies.  We ended up having an odd number of people so one group is a group of three.

 

sara125 and BarefootScientist

Sharita and heathenmom

jsw4 and citymagnolia

paineferia and astar326

imogenlily and Buddamom

jshannyn519 and MaryElizabeth

tracymom1 and Knittin Mama

aleatha5 and Bald_Bull's_Mama

mamatoabunch, grcelizabeth, and mamanoley

swimming-duck and wake_up

amaayeh and ~Nikki~

CrunchyClark and cuddlemama0507

mama2bJune2011 and RaRa7

 

I tried to pair people up roughly by due date and birth type (i.e. homebirth with homebirth, UC with UC, etc.)  If more people want DDC buddies later, we can make more pairings.  Feel free to PM your buddy and exchange email addresses/phone numbers/etc so that you can be in touch!

Lidia that would be splendid :) As for your signature, at the top right of your screen you'll see your screenname next to a logout button. Click on your screen name and it goes to your profile. If you scroll down the screen to close to the bottom, you'll see "Your Forum Signature" and an edit button :)

 

ETA: I'm not sure what the rules are as far as if there is a set post amount you need to have a signature. I've been around for awhile and things have changed A LOT since then :)
