One thing I love about homebirth is that you can choose who you want to catch the baby. For some reason I have never wanted to and DH is usually seated behind me so he hasn't. So, this the baby will be born into the hands of my midwife (who happens to be my best friend as well) and my Mom. My daughter and I will cut the cord together. That saying, "born at home, never touched by a stranger" is so true!

I love it! Your mom must be over the moon excited!

My husband caught our daughter. The poor thing was shaking so bad because he was afraid he was going to do something wrong but now, it is like the proudest moment of his life. He will tell anyone and everyone who will listen LOL

P.S. I am new to posting but have been reading this board for several months.

Wow that is awesome! My mom took pictures while I was birthing and then held ds2 while DH cut the cord. That was really cool.
