What island are you moving to? Honduras holds a special place in my heart - it was the first country I ever lived in by myself as an "adult" (I was 18-19). It's an incredible place. I used to go to...

lightheartedmom - you're right about the birth supplies, I know some midwives do require their clients to purchase a birth kit from somewhere. I have no real explanation! Are you beginning or end of...

CA = California, right (feel sort of dumb double checking that one! I'm Canadian!)? I work with a midwife from California (we're not in CA right now), and I've heard her quote from 5-10K, depending...

I would, personally, just have the homebirth with the midwives. If the travelling midwife were concerned about legal issues, she wouldn't have offered to come, I would imagine. I also don't know...

Names

So, it's really early, but names are both one of the most fun and most frustrating parts of having a baby (I think!). Do you have any picked out already? Are you going to find out gender? Will you...

This midwife says biking is perfectly fine through pregnancy, especially if you've been doing it all along. If it starts to hurt or feel wrong, then stop, but otherwise, I'd keep on keeping on. ;) I...

I see mamas who birth babies after large-ish spaces fairly often. It does seem to make things a little less "easy" than a closely spaced pregnancy. But not always. There are no guarantees!
