Hello! I found this board while searching for vaccine info. I've been looking for a more "natural" due date group.

Here's a little about me:
I'm having a another c/s - this makes my 3rd. My first child was born naturally after laboring in a birthing center with my mid-wife, but while pushing, they lost her heartrate....Called 911 - transported me on my hands and knees with midwife's hand inside keeping baby's head from coming down as they were sure it was a tight cord. Anyway, 20 mins later, at the hospital her heartrate was down to 20bpm - got her out with forceps, leaving me with a medio-lateral episiotomy. Spent the first 24 hrs with her and all was great until they detected a heart murmur and with further testing discovered she had a heart defect. Open heart surgery at 3 days, but lost her the following day. Due to this event we were a bit scared of going natural with our 2nd, but attempted it anyway in a hospital this time. The *exact* same thing happened and my OB decided c/s instead of forceps having already been traumatized down there once. Baby was healthy as could be! Went on to have another child 2.5 yrs later again with c/s and now we are expecting this little surprise in Jan and have scheduled the section for 1-3-06.

We homeschool our DD7 and DS5(who is uncirc'd) and we work from home. We're into attachment parenting/family bed, although our 2 are in their own beds now. We're not getting this baby vaxed and am dealing with much stress over that at the moment - it's so daunting, but we're determined to stand strong.

We bf all 3 children(even got to bf dd#1 3 x which meant the world to me). Plan on bf'ing this one even though I get thrush and it is a painful experience. Working on making it better this time with lots of natural remedies.

So....that's me in a nutshell i guess. Sorry so long. I look forward to sharing this last tri with everyone!

Christi,

Welcome! I'm glad you've joined us!

What traumatic experiences you've had. I was so sorry to read of the loss of your daughter. I am sure I would also be choosing a c/s in a situation like yours.

I look forward to getting to know you on this board,

Emily
