Yay!!! Good for you! It's so important to do what you're comfortable with - it will make your labor and birth so much more relaxed and effective. If you're constantly worrying while you're in labor or somewhere or with someone you're not entirely comfortable with, it will be sooo much harder.
Oh, and on the water breaking thing - mine broke Saturday morning and I didn't have Trinity until Wednesday at 5:30 am. So, no worries, you just have to keep clean and no baths.
Good luck!!

I love what you wrote Anita. I agree that homebirth is the best way to start a new life. Your child's birth is something you will never forget, and it always saddens me when women live with regrets over their birth decisions.

YAY! I'm so glad this is resolved for you. I do hope your insurance will pay, but I agree that a good birth experience is worth that price. Keep us updated as things progress for you .

There is nothing like a good and safe and simple birth for you baby! By protecting your child from the strange birthing practices of the hospital you are doing him/her a favor! It is a great start! It is the BEST start for most women and babies! Congrat's!

Good for you on making the best decision for your family. Dh and I are ttc #2 and I am trying to get him to agree on a home birth for #2 because the trip to the hospital with dd was completely pointless and there is nothing that I could not have done at home. Plus I would avoid the car ride home and I use midwives so they come to me.

Best of luck!
New Siggy coming soon!
