I know many of you from other boards, but for those I don't know, I thought I would introduce myself before I start posting more.

I'm Andrea, mom to 2 little girls - Abigail is 4 and Annabelle is 2. We just found out we are expecting a 3rd in August and I'm planning a homebirth this time. My first daughter was born in a hospital and my second was born at a free standing birth center. I wanted a home birth last time also and compromised on the birth center for my husband. Since this is likely my last baby though, I would like to get the home birth I've been wanting. I had talked to my old midwife, who's now retired but still very involved with the birth center. She told me that the birth center now does home births! I will still have to go there for appointments, but they will come to my home for the birth. A little bit different than your typical home birth midwife, but I love the idea of staying with midwives I already know and am comfortable with. Our insurance also coverd the majority of Anna's birth, and they will bill it the same this time so it works out for us financially too.

I'm sure I'll have some questions along the way, but for now, I'll just jump right in if you don't mind!

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.
