Yesterday I had a preconception visit with a midwife since dh and I are TTC and were hoping for a home birth. Due to my medical history, I wasn't sure if it was possible. One midwife had already said no homebirth for me. She felt I was too high risk since I have had a placental abruption at 22 weeks and with ds I started PT Labor at 26/28 weeks. Well this midwife was WONDERFUL! She told me that she sees me as "medium" risk. And if/when I get pregnant she would be more than willing to help me have a home birth if I agreed to see a perinatologist she knows once a month starting at 18/20 weeks just to keep an eye on my cervix (since with my son I started dialating insanely early and was 7 cm's when they "induced" with him). She assured me that if I went into PT labor he would do everything he could to stall me until I hit 37 weeks so I could have a home birth. Get this, he is PRO HOME BIRTH ! (insert me almost fainting when she told me ) He believes that their are women and reasons to give birth in a hospital, but if it isn't life threatening (or once it gets past the point of life threatening, like PT labor can) then women should be giving birth at home! I am so very excited! My dh is even starting to look forward to the idea of home birth after talking to the midwife and realizing that I will have a good dr if it comes down to it. She provides everything for you so there is nothing for us. She provides the birth kit, the birthing tub (if requested), birthing balls and other natural labor tools. So, if you ladies don't mind I am going to come out of lurkdom and try to be an active member of this board.

We aren't to give a baby milk, berries, or peanut butter. We are to introduce new foods one at a time. But it's OK to inject several viruses, bacteria, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, animal serum, mercury, squalene and more into an 8 week old? I don't think so.
In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.
Our choice to not vax isn't based in ignorance, poverty, conspiracy theory and rumor. It's research, common sense, fact and evidence based..something the medical community has largely forgot about.
