I am Alison, mom to Chris (7), Lucas (5) and Evelyn (1) and DH and I are planning our first home birth for our baby due at the end of September. My previous deliveries have been in the hospital and it just didn't feel right to us. The thought of having this baby at home, and having our children there to participate (if they choose to) just made more sense! My DH is so excited, in fact when we bought our house he pointed out that the tub looked just the right size to birth a baby in I look forward to getting to know you all and I'm sure I'll have lots of questions along the way!

Welcome! Sounds like you are all set! I am jealous that you have a tub big enough to birth in!

Can't wait to get to know you!

HI! We just made the decision to HB about 2 days ago, lol. I have been thinking of it from the beginning of this pregnancy, but just got DH on board when the hospital said he couldn't catch his daughter and they would, no matter what we wanted, cut her cord.

That is so funny that your DH said that about the tub, looks like it was meant to be!!

Welcome! I'm Shawna, wife to Josh and Mama of 4. We always had our first homebirth #3; a waterbirth. It was incredible, so we did it again with #4.

Thanks everyone for the welcome! I'm sure I'll have a lot more questions as my due date gets closer.
