Have you heard of this? Will you be doing it/hiring someone to do it? Have you ever done it before and if so, what was your experience like?

I'm *considering* it but haven't decided. It's the one and only crunchy interest of mine that dh is a little about.

We decided to do this. Our birth class instructor swears by it, and I have a friend who also said it worked great for her, so we went for it.

I have heard about it but it's not really something that I am interested in doing.

I have heard about it. A friend of mine did it and swears by it. But I don't think it's something I am going to do. Not too sure that Brendon would think of that one!

I can't even fathom it. I get shivers just thinking about it. But to all the Momma's who do it, all the power to you! Makes me squeamish. Lol

My cousin told me about it and said she would have done it if she would have known before she gave birth.

I'm not interested. It makes me feel queezy just thinking about it.

I had it done after Emie and I still have some left. My milk came in faster, I felt "human" sooner, and my bleeding stopped sooner than with my previous pregnancies.

I'm having it done again with this baby. My midwife does it for me.

I've heard of it and tried to wrap my mind around it, especially with as much as I suffer from baby blues but I just don't think it's something I could do.

I'm quite interested in it, but I don't think it'll fit in our budget. It really all depends on what we get for shower gifts- I know that sounds awful, but I'm only going to get a paycheck for about 4 out of my 12 weeks of maternity leave. So, the more money we have to spend on baby stuff, the less we will have to live on. If we get everything and then some for our shower, then I definitely want to do this! But, I won't sacrifice time off with the baby for it...if that makes sense.

DH did most of mine for me. I never even looked at it because I felt that if I knew what it looked like, I wouldn't be able to get it out of my head. Unfortunately though, I didn't feel any benefits in comparison with my previous two births!

I'll be doing it. If I had known about it years ago, I would have done it with my first two. I need to recover as quickly as possible this time. I've got two kids to homeschool (hubby will be useless at that, though I'm hoping he takes care of the household duties for a week or two) and we will be taking a trip to Florida (14 hours each way) within a couple weeks of the baby being born. I'd like to put the trip off a little longer, but hubby might deploy in late October so it's his only chance to go.

I would totally do it if I could. I know a girl that does it in San Antonio and she gave me a lot of great info the last time I was pregnant. The research about it is pretty compelling.

I've looked into it and agree that it seems like a wonderful thing to do, but...I could never get past the ick factor with this regardless of the benefits. I've seen it, and uh...well, no I just can't. Kudos to the rest of you ladies who are going for it though!
