Hi, I'm Rachel. We just found out this weekend that we're expecting #6 around 12/6. DH and I are both very excited about it. We weren't really trying but had been talking about TTC in the near future. We haven't told our older kids yet mostly because I don't feel like telling the family yet and my kids like to talk. We're planning a homebirth again. All 5 of our other babies were born at home and it's really the only way we know to do it.

Anyways, I just wanted to stop by and introduce myself.

 
Rachel , wifey to best friend Karl ,
SAHM to Kaelan (11) Chandra (9) Liam (7) Lachlan (5) Killian (4),Riordan (1), Baby Boy EDD 11/14. All born at home!

Welcome, Rachel! That's so cool that you've had 5 homebirths! I am hoping for one myself, but it may be difficult in my state since it's illegal here for a certified nurse midwife to attend a homebirth and I don't think I could UC. My state also doesn't recognize the other types of midwives, but I am hoping to still be able to find one.

Hi Rachel! Congrats and welcome! I am planning on having a homebirth as well- but this will be my first so I'm a little nervous. I look forward to picking your brain about it, I'm sure you have much wisdom to impart

Hello and welcome! d

I'd love to hear about your homebirth experiences sometime. I've had 4 (less than impressive and with much intervention) hospital births because it was all I knew. I've now watched the Ricki Lake movie (which I would recommend to ALL pregnant women) and cannot imagine going back to a hospital unless I have no other option. With the national rate of c-sections and 4 vaginal births behind me, in the hospital's eyes, I'm (over?) due for a c-section!

Congrats!

Tracy
