Shalom To Everyone,<br><br>
It is nice meeting you and I look forward to meeting the rest of you. We are vegans and hebrew. I am very glad that I found this community. I commend all of you for your empowering experiences.<br><br>
I am about 2 months into my second pregnancy. The birth of my first child was a very disappointing experience . My husband and I planned to have our child at home. We hired a mid-wife during my 7th month. Because of our belief system(I did not want her examine me internally) I had to stop working with her. My due date was scheduled for the later part of April. My water broke on 4/28/05. My contractions were far apart. On 5/2/05 my sister made a herbal remedy to speed up my contractions. By 6:00am the contractions were coming sooner and the pain was more intense. I tried the sitting in the tub but I was frustrated, restless, and uncomfortable. My husband became upset with me because I was not relaxing and instead tense. Finally since I did not feel as though I had his support and I was worried that something might be wrong I asked to go to the hospital. My sister had to take me since my husband wouldn't. I had an epidural and an episiotomy. As soon as my son was born he was taken away since he was having trouble breathing. I couldn't breastfeed him for 2 days. I never want to go to another hospital. It is very important for me to have this baby at home. Is this still possible since I have already had an episiotomy? I have started reading several natural birthing books including Childbirth without fear. Do you have any more suggestions for me?<br><br>
Shalom,<br>
