Okay so I was at Denise's birth today (AMAZING) but anyways she speaks with her neighbors and let them know that she would be giving birth at home so no one thought anything was wrong ect. Well I have never once spoken to my neighbors. They dont socialize outside of their family and I would just feel weird announcing it to them. So would you think maybe some signs that said Home Birth in progress or something along those lines to put on the house in case someone thinks something is wrong in our house? I dunno seems weird but I really know that my neighbors do not want anything to do with us so I dont think I would want to be telling them. lol. Thoughts?

I didn't tell anyone anything. I'm sure there was a time that if they were outside they could have heard me (pushing stage) but we never let them know. I didn't want signs cause I didn't want dh's family to know until after (which worked out great).....but I dont think it's a bad idea. I'm just not close enough with any of our neighbors to share that kind of information.

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.

I see no harm in it. We had a sign up. It was mainly so that people wouldn't knock because then our dogs bark and their big so they have loud barks. We live in a house though and I didn't make much noise, no problems with the neighbors, I still don't think they know ds2 was born at home.

I hadn't thought much about this, but our houses are fairly far apart, and I don't think I will be very loud. Hopefully there will be nothing to worry about!

Thank you to the SSMC makers for my beautiful siggies!

Hadn't even thought about it.
I'm not normally too noisy, but then again, I've never given birth. I doubt the neighbors would hear anything. Also my midwife's car has a big decal on it with the name and number of her practice. That'll be parked in the driveway and should probably clue people in.

I'm debating this myself. I live in a duplex, but we hardly ever hear our neighbors. However, our bedrooms do touch, so I think it might be nice to let them know.

My biggest concern is my kids' friends. Everyday at least one neighbor kid will knock or ring the door bell to see if they can play. During the school day, or at night, it wouldn't be a problem. But if my birthing time happens in the afternoon, I don't want a bunch of kids running around, you know? So, we'll see. I'll probably have something made up, in case.
