hi! i'm due sept 13th & i just recently found the forums here! i'm bummed that it took this long. i've been involved with/posting on a very un-enlightened forum & i'm soooo happy to meet ladies that don't think vaginas are ugly, birth is disgusting & penises should be circumcised because they're naturally "gross".<br>
my short story:<br>
i'm planning a homebirth for my first boy. my partner is in the process of leaving me, he decided AFTER getting me pregnant that he doesn't want to be a dad, but my amazing best friend is my birth coach. i was fired from my job for getting pregnant...i worked in the very sexist restaurant industry, but i hope that i've had my fill of drama for this pregnancy.<br>
i'm fortunate enough to live in seattle where we're attending a homebirth class with penny simkin.<br>
can't wait to meet all of you!<br>

hi! plenty of time in this pregnancy and beyond to be part of the MDC.<br><br>
sounds like you have been through the ringer, but hopefully it will all be wonderful from here on. Penny Simkin is awesome! I took a couple of workshops with her over the years and just love her. that must be a fantastic birth class. please share some of the good advice you learn here!<br><br>
welcome!
