I have been lurking on this board for awhile and am finally going to join. I just finished reading Guide to Childbirth by Ina May Gaskin, and let me tell you, I will be buying that book for everyone of my friends or family that is planning or expecting a baby in the near future.

I have always been one of those people who didn't want kids, but then I met my DH and after we got engaged I realized that I wanted to have this mans babies. Ever since we have started TTC I have been reading as much information as I can (this website is great for it!!) I have decided that I want to have a natural birth, I want a home birth but there are no midwives in our area, I am not sure how my DH would feel about an unassisted birth, which I have also thought about doing.

I love reading all the stories of the women who have been able to achieve natural birth and I hope that I can do the same in the future.


My name is Megan by the way lol!!! Totally forgot to introduce myself!! Dh (Micky) and I are TTC #1, I am active on the TTC#1 board.

Anyways hope that I can learn even more!!

Welcome! what a great head start you have to a natural birth! I don't think it ever occurred to me until I was pregnant!

I hope you have some news to update really soon!
