Of course you may join! The more the merrier!

I'm Stephanie, I just had my first baby a little over a month ago. She was born in an unassisted homebirth.

Where are you from? Depending on the state you are in the midwifery laws may have driven homebirth midwives underground (I know they have here). If thats the case it may take some assistance to find a midwife. Let us know how your search goes, there may be people on here who can help.

Hi and welcome K.M., I'm Jen, I am due 8/20 with baby #7, which will be my 3rd homebirth.


Here's a start to searching for a homebirth midwife...Let us know where you are, if you are in the states or not. Someone here may be able to help.

Search for MW

Good luck.

Hi! You're due just a few days ahead of me. I had four hospital births before I finally figured out to stay home... best thing I ever did. I hope you're able to find a mw!

Absolutely! welcome! Hopefully with those links you will be able to find a good MW, if not , and if you are comfortable with the idea, there are lots of resources here on UC. Good luck in your search, stick around and ask as many questions as you like.

I also had my first in a hospital wiht pitocin. NEVER AGAIN.
