Hello all. I thought that I would introduce myself to this part of the community. I am 27 years old and pregnant with my first. My husband and I have always been interested in natural childbirth. We decided early in this pregnancy that I would use a midwife/birthing center and have a natural childbirth. I look forward to sharing this experience with you and learning from your experiences.

Thank you both! My name is Barbara. I am married to a very supportive husband named Neko. We are extremely excited about this pregnancy. We learned this week that we may face some challenges with regards to the Rh factor. It's premature to discuss at this point, I guess, since my husband's blood type has not been established.

At any rate we are counting the weeks as we embark on parenthood!

Welcome Barbara, I am Catherine. My husband and I are expecting our first in February. Similar to you we will be using a midwife and delivering in a birthing center outside of a hospital.

Thank you for the warm welcome!

I'm not sure if it was any one thing that interested us. We've heard horror stories about epidurals and how some regretted having had one during their labor. DH and I believe that my body is capable of giving birth to a child without any sort of intervention. We initially thought a home birth would be suitable for us, but I have quite the zoo living in my home and thought it may be a distraction. haha So we did some research and finally chose a birthing center not too far from home. So far so good.

I wish you the best of luck TTC your first!

Welcome! I'm a lurker here myself...I'm Kristin, mommy two two, birth doula, love supporting pregnant women. Not planning on more kids - but I had a home birth last December after one of those epidural horror stories with my first DD. Best of luck to you, I know you'll do great!
