Hey everyone, I'm new to this board! I'm Marisa, 22 and married to Jason (27). We have a 2 year old son named Gage who was born Jan 4th 06. We're expecting our 2nd child on my husbands birthday, November 21st, 2008. I feel that this one is going to be a Thanksgiving baby. I called my son's date of birth. He went 5 days over. I just had a feeling of the day he'd be born on since it has a special meaning to me.

Well, we're having a home birth with this baby. I had a horrible experience with my first birth that ended up with an unwanted and unneeded c-section. I had my heart set on a VBAC but I couldn't bring it to myself to birth in a hospital again. So, after much convincing of my husband (he wasn't for a home birth at all, then he met our midwife and she answered all his questions) we decided that a home birth vbac will be best for us this child.

So, I wanted to join. I am sure I'll have tons of questions within the next few months. It took me quite awhile to find my midwife since we recently moved from Downstate MI to Upstate MI. This town isn't exactly very VBAC friendly. I went to two CNM's who didn't have supporting backup doctors to do the VBAC. So after feeling let down there, I found a home birth midwife who answered all my questions and took away any fear I had.

I hope to become very active (I'm sure I will within months!).
