I'm planning on writing an article in which I interview 3 UCers with different backgrounds. I'd like to interview someone having their first baby (or just their first UC) and two people who have UC'd before. We can do the interview in private message or on Yahoo, AIM, email, even right here on a forum if you want. Basically I just want to give the world some insight into the life and mind of UCers, their beliefs, and their choice. It'd also be good for me, I think, being that I'm planning my first UC with #2. I may just use myself as one of the interview people. But that might be cheating lol!

I'd be willing, too. I'm a single mama of soon to be 4. Ds#1 was a medically managed hospital birth, dd was a midwife managed waterbirth, ds was an all alone UC waterbirth and #4 will be another waterbirth.

Well you already have tons of interest <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> But I would be happy to as well if needed. I have had two hospital births (first baby in NICU) and two UCs - one solo and the second one a couple's birth. My email is kdlrsmom @ aol dot com

I am still sorting through all the replies. I'm going to do 2-3 seperate articles, so first I'm going to focus on people that had or are having their first baby by UC..then move on to other circumstances, like second baby but first UC, or UC after hospital birth, etc. I want to represent as many backgrounds as possible. So let me focus on this one right now, and I will get back to everyone else in a few days. I have to create different surveys for each group!

I sent the survey to everyone who responded so far up to my last post. Raspberrymoondoula, amy jeans, I'll send you one as soon as I can. I'd love to hear your thoughts especially raspberrymoondoula, because you had a UBAC. That's a situation I haven't covered yet. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Heather,<br>
looks like you have a great response! I would be willing to share my story also, 15 years ago hospital birth induction, every intervention short of c section, 13 years ago hospital birth less interventions but still too many! And expecting in July up and uc. Dh's experience 7 years ago hospital birth induction of twins and every intervention including c section for one of the twins. We would both love to share with you!<br>
Also would love to read when you are done! Happy writing!
