Hey there - this is my first chance to hop over here from the labor & childbirth board & from the OCt DDC.

As some of you know - I had an OB & was (hesitantly) planning a natural childbirth in the hospital.

Well, just so happened, my Dr had a falling out with his partner, she kicked him out & hes been forced out of town b/c of a no compete agreement.

So stuck without an OB - I narrowed down my choices to the birthing center or a homebirth.

After much debate, we arrived at a decision today at lunch - a homebirth it is!

Lala...

very cool! I have a clotting disorder that prevents me from delivering at home, but I think it is such a beautiful thing to be able to be in your own comfort zone!

YIPEE!!

(if I were more familiar with smileys here, I'd do a smiley parade!)

I didn't post on any of your threads while you were deciding, because it's very obvious where my loyalties lie. You'll have a GREAT experience, I'm sure.
