I'm finally doing it!!

My name is Kelly (26), DH and I just had our first child in November...

I was striving for an NCB, what I ended up with was a vaginal delivery with a MEDwife, crotchity OB, Pitocin, and epidural...

What I want now for my future pregnancies is still all natural, and just to be left alone to do what nature intended with a reall MW...

After the birth of our daughter, and the emotional trauma I want to consider m next pregnancies to be home births... I have already found a MW that does homebirths but what to get as knowledgeable as possible on this subject before we consider TTC for our next... I have been lurking on this board frequently but now it's time...

I really want to be a home birther from now on!!!

Welcome! I am Marisa, I have 2 boys Gage is 4 and Dane is 16 months. I am pregnant with our 3rd baby Bishop, who is due in August. This will be my 2nd HBAC. I had Dane at home in November of 2008. Gage's birth was at a hospital and was very traumatic for me, he ended up being a c-section. I am very upset about it still but am learning to heal. He is my bright star and Dane's birth helped me learn how to start to bring closure.

Can't wait to get to know you more

Welcome to the board! I'm Christine.... mama to 3 little girls and pregnant with #4 (a boy) and due in June. I had my first at a hospital with an OB and had an AWFUL experience (although most women would probably say it was fine), I had the pitocin and epidural with her. My next was born with a midwife, naturally, in water at a birthing center that was actually a house outside of a hospital. My third was born at home, and we are planning our 4th to be born at home as well.

Glad to have you here!

Welcome! I had first three in the hospital with OB and inductions and had the next two at home with my fabulous midwife. I am planning another home birth this summer with our last baby.

Thanks ladies...

I will for the most part being lurking but will occasionally jump into convo but I want to get well acquainted as much as I can on home births...

I would really love to have the rest of my pregnancies be at home, and I have DH on board as well.. since he thinks OBs are quacks... lol at least the ones we encountered... ugh
