We found and hired a midwife who will be there for us in case of any trouble, for a very hands-off home birth. It will be our 3rd home birth, and we're very excited to have her on board with us! Tried for a heartbeat, but nothing yet! Next time. :D

Very cool. A good friend of mine is prepping for her second home birth. If we didn't have such good insurance coverage that allowed me to see midwives and go to an alternative birth center, I would also be exploring home birth options! Good for you! Hope you get to hear that magical hb next time. :)

I think all of you home-birthers are so brave! I just couldn't do it.

Cool, I've always wanted to have a homebirth. I have as natural of experience as I can in the hospital.

Next appointment is on Feb. 21, which by coincidence is my daughter's 16th birthday. What an amazing day that will be!
