Hi all!

I am (cautiously) expecting my first little one, and I am very early in my pregnancy. But I have always wanted an assisted home birth, and thought that I would love to post here now to get as much info as possible, if that is alright?

I just wanted to introduce myself right off, and tell you that I am open to any and all info you would be willing to share!

Welcome and congratulations on your pregnancy! I had my first home birth in October and it was an amazing experience.

Thanks for the welcome, Alison! I am so excited to have my home birth!

I need some support because my mother is completely against it (among a couple other decisions I have made) so I need someone to lean on for advice!

Absolutely! My Mom was pretty freaked out by the whole concept but in the end she came around and was here for the birth and now thinks it was the best thing ever I am sure you will find a lot of support here.

Welcome, Lauren - and congratulations! You're very welcome, and I hope you'll add yourself to the due date list. There's a great (and informative) bunch of ladies here, so feel free to ask anything.

I had my first homebirth in December, and it was just wonderful...my MIL thought I was crazy (especially when she showed up afterward and saw the pool), but that was fine by me. Your birth, your way, right?

Sorry I haven't been around, girls. I will have to back out of here now, as I began miscarrying yesterday afternoon. Thank you all for the warm welcome, and I will be back someday!
