Hi everyone! I'm Natalie, 27, due with my second baby (another girl) on September 22nd. I'm part of the September DDC with Wonderfullymade and was very excited to see the invite for this board.

I was induced with my first daughter due to pregnancy-induced hypertension and had just about every monitor and intervention possible. All turned out well and we got to take Ella home right away. However, we're hoping/wishing for a natural/unmedicated birth this time. We're have a few more weeks of Bradley classes left. We feel soooo much more educated and prepared about the WHOLE process. I'm sure I was in transition when I asked for my epidural, since Ella was born less than an hour later!! If only I would have known (sigh...) We've also hired our Bradley teacher to be our Doula (yea!!!!) We plan on staying home as long as possible during labor, but we will deliver in a hospital with an OB.

We're REALLY looking forward to the birth of our daughter. I'm thrilled to have you all for support, advice, etc. and am happy to get to know everyone!
