My 3rd was my first homebirth. She was at home with a registered midwife (RM), in water.

I had two fabulous freestanding Birth Center births (both Water Births) and then we moved so I had a home birth only midwife/ND and had my first home birth with #3 (also a water birth). I'm due any day now and will have homebirth #4 (hopefully water birth as well)! DEFINITELY prefer the home birth!

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.

My second was my first home birth - Amelia was born in a pool in my living room, and it was incredible. I SO wish I had considered a home birth with my first!

My first birth was a homebirth. So, there was no question about my second.

My second was our first homebirth. I'd tried to talk dh into a birth center for our first but he said NO. Talked him into UC for #2 and #3 and future #4.

My baby isn't due until July, but he will be our first child and first homebirth. I wouldn't want to do it any other way.
