I am ready to share some big baby news! But, I want you all to keep an open mind :) And know that I would NEVER put myself or our baby in harms ways. I have decided not to have our baby at a hospital and instead have our baby in the comfort of our home. Ok remember breath...it is safe. I will have a nurse midwife with me the whole time who will also deliver the baby. I am meeting with a midwife on Thursday morning. She has been doing this for the past 30 years and has delivered over 4,000 babys. I am so excited to meet her! She has a website with lots of great info www.lakesidebirthcenter.com There is also a great documentary called "The Bussiness of Birth" this is were I first got my info on home births. So as long as everything goes good with my pregnancy, this is how I will deliver our baby. Also Matt is completely ok with this, I have books all over the house about it. I know it sounds a little strange but I am really excited about it. The idea of having our baby at the hospital freaks me out...totally. All those tubes they hook up to you and all the people that are running in and out of your room. Not my cup of tea! I am planning on relaxing in between my contracts or try :) Listening to good music and sitting in a tube of warm water...so much better:) I might even deiced to have the baby in the midwifes bithcenter, it is beautiful. She has lots of pictures on her website. Please check it, I think it will ease your mind.
