Your name: Marisa
LO Due date or birthdates: Gage 1.4.06 (hospital), Dane 11.28.08 (home) and Bishop 9.1.10 (home)
Why you chose a homebirth: I felt robbed of my first birth, they did things that didn't need to be done. I was fearful of going back and couldn't find a supporting doctor to a midwife for a VBAC. So we went the home birth route and loved it.
Something we don't know about you!: I love photography and graphic design and am relearning both haha

LO Due date or birthdates: baby #2 EDD 10/22/10, Zane's bday 1/21/09
Why you chose a homebirth: many reasons....wanted as natural birth as possible, felt the safest, most comfortable at home, like the personalness of having a MW, like not having to go to get in hte car/go to the hopsital in labor- fear of hopsitals and medical interventions that are unnecessary.
Something we don't know about you!: I love photography and hope to one day be a birth photographer

Your name:Martha
LO Due date or birthdates: EDD is 5/18/11..Emma is 8/25/02, Elzie 6/14/04, Gretchen 2/5/06, Olive 9/20/08...first three hossy...fourth was freestanding birth center....and hopefully this one will be at home...
Why you chose a homebirth: my first and foremost reason is that having a baby isn't medical....obgyn's and hospitals are for sick mommas and sick babies...not for healthy ones....and that the hospital is full of germs that are antibiotic resistant germs...why would I want my tiny little newborn around that unless it was necessary.
Something we don't know about you!: I wear flip flops until the snow is deep enough to go over the top of them...then I break out the tennies....I HATE tennis shoes....I only wear them when I absolutely MUST

We aren't to give a baby milk, berries, or peanut butter. We are to introduce new foods one at a time. But it's OK to inject several viruses, bacteria, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, animal serum, mercury, squalene and more into an 8 week old? I don't think so.
In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.
Our choice to not vax isn't based in ignorance, poverty, conspiracy theory and rumor. It's research, common sense, fact and evidence based..something the medical community has largely forgot about.

Your name: Debbie.
LO Due date or birthdates: October 30th.
Why you chose a homebirth: Because of the convenience and the fact that I really do not require medical intervention - I've had healthy pregnancies with easy labors & births.. So why pay thousands upon thousands to have an impersonal care routine & deliver at a hospital that will shuffle me to a few different rooms.. Poke & prod me when all I want to do is glow & enjoy me LO? I guess it just seemed right for us.
Something we don't know about you!: I have a lot of tattoos!

Your name: Ginni

LO Due date or birthdates: Kurt-2002-hospital, Kyle 2004-hospital, Claire 2008-c/s, Cade 8/8/10-HBAC

Why you chose a homebirth: because I am disgusted by what birth has become and the only way to have a natural, intervention free birth without having to fight for it is at home, especially for a VBAC

Something we don't know about you!: I have my tongue pierced
