Natural Birth

Who is having a homebirth?

Hi! I'm new on here.

I'm just about 18 weeks pregnant with my first baby and it's a girl. I am having a homebirth with a wonderful group of CPMs and have started taking my hypnobirthing classes. 

I was wondering who else on here is having a homebirth? I would be going to a birthing center but there is none in my state yet. I hear they are getting ready to build one though. 


Re: Who is having a homebirth?

  • Hi : ) Yes we are planning at homebirth - as long as everything goes okay during pregnancy. I am a few weeks behind you and due in November. I am pretty far away from a hospital though which makes me a little nervous. I don't feel much better about a birth center because I'd rather be around my own germs and it doesn't seem much different other than proximity to the hospital for me.
  • I'm having my second baby and second home birth in about 7ish weeks hopefully. My first was born at home with a wonderful CPM 14 months ago. I wanted to have a home birth because I wanted the comfort and privacy of my own house, control over my labor, and a close relationship with my care provider. My state has no freestanding birth centers but they are in the process of funding and building one. However, I still would have chosen home birth with my MW.

  • FTM here and we are planning a HB and I am really excited about it.  I hate my hospital.  
  • I'm a FTM. I had my daughter at home and it was amazing! Like PP said, I wouldn't want to birth any other way. GL to you (all of you), having your baby at home is the best!

  • We just found out yesterday that we're expecting LO #4, and are planning a homebirth. I knew if we had another one it would be at home. I think DH is on board, though we may meet some opposition from family, particularly DHs (actually I plan to not even tell them).  I've had a hospital birth, a hospital-attached-birth-center birth, and a free standing birth center birth. Time for a home birth!

  • I had a home water birth with my daughter almost 7 weeks ago. It was an amazing experience and I wouldn't give birth any other way! It was my first too.
