hey ladies! im valarie, im a long time member of JM, regular member on the july 2005 playroom and co-host of the cloth diapering board. im 23, wife to matt, mama to ricky and christian and due with my 3rd in january.
i have been visiting the homebirth board, as i was looking into and researching and thought i had chosen a homebirth as our best option. but we have since decided it isn't the best route right now. im going for a VBA2C. i will be getting a doula to birth with me at home, im purchasing a kiddie laboring pool and will try waterlaboring. we've done our research and interviewing for doctors in our area, talked to ICAN, midwives, doulas etc...and even the ICAN leader here said that for las vegas im S.O.L. for finding a doc that will support it. so for now im letting my doc think we will be doing the planned cesarean, until the time comes to tell him what we have really chosen. we'll deal with the consequences at that time...he might drop me, but i don't care, there's plenty of on call docs and E.R.s around us, and im less than 5 minutes from 3 new excellent hospitals, one being less than a mile from our house.
so i figured i would start transitioning over here form the homebirth board since i technically don't belong there anymore.
