Hi I'm Nikki. I have a beautiful 3.5 year old daughter and currently am just about 6w pregnant with my 2nd.

I've been going back and forth whether or not we could afford a home birth, and finally last night I just threw my hands up and said I want what I want, and I'm gonna have that! I feel very confident in my choice and have our first prenatal with the home birth midwife June 12 and I cannot wait!!!

With my 1st at the time of my birth I thought I was happy with it, but around 4m pp I used to lay awake at night regretting all my decisions I had a hospital birth and after 30 hours of natural labor I was only 4cm and they started coming after me about pitocin. They made me very uncomfortable and I cried many many times while I was there, I caved to the pit and told them I wanted an epi before the pit was started, it was a very hard choice for me and of course looking back I wished I hadn't even stayed at the hospital. You see I was told it was pit or leave. I honestly should have left and come back when I was further along. 8 hours later my precious baby girl was born, only 45 minutes after my water broke!

I don't want to experience a hospital birth again unless it is medically necessary for baby and I to be healthy. I look forward to getting to know you all during our pregnancies.
