Hi ladies!

I am new to this board, I recently found out we are pregnant with our first after TTC for 14 months! We would love to have a natural childbirth! I look forward to getting to know everyone and finding out different methods to use during labor!

HI COLLEEN!!!!!! WHEEEE! I am so so so happy to see you here

There is a doula service for women whose spouses are deployed, that may interest you based on your DH's plans with the military.

Oh, and get Ina May's Guide to Childbirth.


Wheeeeeee!

I am still so happy about your BFP!

I will definitely get that! Do you know if the doula service is available even if they might send him back for the birth?

Welcome and congrats, Colleen!! My husband is in the Marines and will be deployed when this baby is due. I'm pretty sure the services are only for women whose husbands will not be present at the birth, but the program is called Operation Special Delivery if you want to look up more info. I think its a wonderful service and will be using it myself.

Make yourself at home here : )

I guess I won't be doing it then, he will be deployed but I guess there's a slight chance they may send him home for the delivery which I would absolutely love!
