Thought I would introduce myself! My name is Rachel, and I have 1 DD, 16 months, who was born in the hospital. For this pregnancy, DH and I are planning our first home birth! I am due December 25th (yay Christmas baby!) and am getting sooo excited! I love my midwife group and feel so at peace with our decision. My last labor was 7 hrs, back labor, and ended in an epi (that didn't work- boo), so I'm hopeful for a successful drug-free homebirth this time around. Looking forward to joining you all!
Welcome! My first daughter's birth sounds similar to your experience with your first- hospital birth, 6.5 hour back labor with epi that didn't relieve the back labor. I went on to have an out-of-hospital natural birth at a freestanding birth center with dd#2 (easy 3.5 hour labor) and a home birth with dd#3 (easy 4 hour labor). I hope you also have an easy home birth with your baby #2.
welcome! Im Bree, like you my first child was born in a hospital, i had a quick labour, 6 hours but ended up getting the epi. Our Second son was born at home, after only 3 hours of labour, it was such a different and amazing experience.
