Well, this morning I was browsing a due date board that I have been visiting and I had to bite my tongue. I went in search of a natural birth forum and I found a home birth forum too!! Woo hoo!!

My name is Tanya. I am 30 years old. I am pregnant with my fourth child. This will be my third homebirth. My first birth was a HORRIBLE PAINFUL induced (but painmed free) hospital birth. After getting pregnant with my second child, I thought that I was going to have to go through a similar experiece again. I wanted to curl into the fetal position and stay there chanting "it's going to be okay" to myself until it was over. Luckily, my cousin told me that she was having a homebirth so I started researching homebirths and I could not wait to give birth again. My second birth was so spiritual and beautiful. Just me and my beautiful ladies (and hubby, lol). I could feel them, but no one spoke. Totally my most empowering moment ever!! My third birth was fantastic but not as spiritual because I was not in a very spiritual place at the time. I had lots of anger and resentment in me because of a family dilemna and it effected not only my birth but my child. Baby #3 was a little more tempermental than the other two! I am out of that bad place now and I am totally siked about this labor and this baby. That is so funny to say that I am siked about labor but I am sure that someone here has to understand why. My big goal is to catch my own baby this time.

I am looking forward to reading lots and lots of birth stories.

Welcome to this board Tanya! I'm Kimberly. I've had three fantastic, natural, water births. Two at a freestanding birth center and the last one at home. I'm currently pregnant with number 4 and will have him/her at home too. I'm due March 14th.

When is your current baby due?

The world today is upside down because there is so very little love in the home, and in family life. We have no time for each other. Everybody is in such a terrible rush, and so anxious…and in the home begins the disruption of the peace of the world.

Welcome! I'm Katie, I'm pregnant with my 2nd baby and due on Jan 10th. My first was induced because of preeclampsia and also extremely painful so I'm hoping to have a better experience this time. I'm so excited to do a home birth!

Welcome, Tanya - congrats on your new little bundle on the way! I hope you can catch your baby this time - it's an amazing thing, knowing that *no one* touched your little one before you did.
