Hey Ladies! My name is Natalie and I was a part of the March DDC for the first portion of my pregnancy and then at 24 weeks sort of dropped off the DCC after choosing to focus on a natural birth and switching my care to midwifery. I've been totally immersed in preparations by reading every natural childbirth book I can get my hands on and have simply had no time to commit to the March DDC but have been looming around here for a few weeks and thought it would be polite to introduce myself.

I am in the midst of the hypnobabies home study and am just shy of 35 weeks pregnant. My husband and I will be shooting for a natural hospital water birth and are really looking forward to bringing our son into the world in the most beautiful, peaceful, comfortable way possible.

We have one daughter together already who is 8 years old. Her birth was a medicated, uncomplicated vaginal delivery (wonderful in it's own way). I'm looking forward to feeling the power of my body this time.

Thanks for all of the inspiration!

Good for you! I had a painfree hypnobabies waterbirth with my second after having a medicated first delivery. You will love hypnobabies and you'll do great!

Hey, welcome!!! We aren't too far apart, I'm just past the 34 week. I know how you feel about not feeling your DDC. There are some girls in mine who are great, but I don't feel like my NCB or any of my opinions that come with it are welcome, so I'm glad to have this board to come to. I hope you keep posting here!!!

I post some in March DDC, but I joined late, and I am a NCB momma too. I have had 3 homebirths, 3 natural hospital births, 1 medicated hospital birth (my first baby), and 2 csections.
I am due March 13 and having another natural hospital birth. I would love to be able to birth in their birth center in a tub, but against policy due to my sections.
I did Hypnobabies with my fifth.

Anyway, congrats and good luck with everything!
