Home-birthers? Preggo question too...

I had my DD almost 3 weeks ago and I am very proud to say I had her at home, in a birthing pool (unassisted!). It was such a beautiful expierence, I think about it everyday. I just want to know if there is anyone who had also had a home birth/ water birth or are preggo and are interested in it. I am only 19 years old, ( just turned 19 in august) and I am so amazed at how easy birthing can be if you do it naturally. I was always so scared about having kids becasue of how everyone puts it out to be. It wasnt the worse pain in my life, it wasnt comfortable, but it was tolerable. I definitly plan on having more kids ( way later though) and when I do i know it will be another amazing expierence in water!! <3 =D

  • Congratulations on the birth of your daughter! I haven't had a homebirth yet, my first two were born in hospitals, third was a waterbirth in a Birth Center, LOVED the water! I plan to have homebirths with all future children though, can't wait =D

  • I had a home water birth as well. I wish water for pain management was available to more women.
