Hello New Birth Junkie here! [Aug. 4th, 2004|12:43 pm]

Hi, I am a 26 year old mom of 3 blessings! I am a doula, but im trying to get my certification through DONA by December or January. I have everything done except my classes. I have been interested in birth since I was 10. I always wanted to have that experience, but unfortunately I had to have sections because of these huge cysts I would get on my ovaries. My last baby was born 4 weeks early (i went into labor)and i know I could have gotten her out! She was 8 lbs even and perfect. However, i did lose my left ovary. I want four children, but I dont know if that is possible. With the fourth, if I do conceive, I am striving once again towards a home water birth. I just hope I can do that, but if I can't, I am so grateful for the three blessings that I have the pleasure of being mama to! I always wanted to be a midwife, and I do know everything about birthing a baby, but I never did go to school for it. I am a nurse, but that has nothing to do with it LOL. i worked in an OB office for a year and then I had my children. I am a SAHM, I do own a tiny jewelry business and I homeschool my children. I dont know anything about this, but is there such a thing as a lay midwife? Im sure I could birth a baby, but I dont want to do anything illegal. Im always hoping that one of my friends would have a baby and go into labor while i was there LOL! I know i could do it, its what i live and breathe for. I have to admit, im a little obsessed about births, once a friend of mine told me she was having her baby i ran over there as soon as i could, but she had already gone to the hospital and in NY they wouldnt let me in. Now im in VT and its different here with the hospital laws. I feel like if I dont have another baby or a friend doesnt have one soon im going to burst LOL! For the past 6 years, ive been having babies and breastfeeding, usually its every 2 years i have a baby. I want that now, but I dont know if that is possible. I look forward to sharing birth stories!

Hello all! My name is Autumn and I just joined this community. I'm 18 and expecting my first child. I'm due on January 1, 2005, I thought that was a great due date.

I have a question though. When did you all start lactating? I've started leaking a little from my breasts, its not milk, its clear, but I don't know anything about this. Any imput is great!

Hello all. Just joined livejournal last week, so I am new to this group, but not new to unassisted birth. Septeber 21, 2002 I gave birth at home, unassisted vbac. I would just like to say if anyone has any questions, feel free to ask me because it was actually my husband who suggested it to me - I was the one with fears... I like to say he converted me :-) So if anyway has questions, feel free to shoot them my way!

Hey everyone!! Just wanted to introduce myself: I'm Tiffany, 19 y.o., mother to two angels in Heaven, Aidan Shanley (6-16-02, 8 weeks gestation) and Aisling Paige (2-25-04, 6 weeks 6 days gestation). I am an apprentice midwife and will be starting a CPM course this fall. I work under a homebirth midwife in VA and I LOVE MY JOB!!! I have been pursuing this career for almost 5 years (5 on June 10 of this year), ever since the homebirth of my midwife's 3rd child, a little girl named Dara. Hope to get to know everyone, have a blessed day!!!
