Hey Kristen! It's great to see you here

There was another thread on here that had a great list of questions to ask.


Let me know how it goes! I'm glad to see you here

Glad you're here! That's a great link to start with. Once you sit down to talk with your midwife, one question will likely lead to some you hadn't thought of yet, until you're all set. Best of luck to you!

Pretty much just opening up the topic of homebirth with your midwife will lead to a great conversation. I find that topics and questions flow and towards the end the big questions really do get answered.

Write down some of the things that you REALLY want to know. What are your FEARS. Why do you WANT to have her attend you at home. What does she BRING to a birth.

Let us know what happens!
