5th Child, 4th Unmedicated Birth, but 1st Home Birth!

by January Harshe on January 24, 2012

“On Jan 7th, I had my 5th little blessing. It was my 4th med-free/natural birth and my 1st homebirth! Because of some of my own experiences and some hard things I’d seen as a doula, I had some fears to work through. Thank you for your site which helped me gain peace about my home birth. I had NO FEAR that day, only peace. We had a beautiful birth. She was born in a tub in our kitchen surrounded by family and friend and all our kids (ages 9, 7, 5 and 3) came right in as soon as she was out. It was perfect! Thank you for doing what you do!” ~Rachel L.

Oooh, I love that brother-baby pic!! Lovely!!

Congratulations, Mama!!

I have had five no-med, no-intervention hospital births. They’ve been very satisfying, but if I got pg again, I’d have a home birth, too. 😀 Here’s hoping!!

I am having my first natural birth this June. I also have some fears about home birth. Would you be willing to talk with me about home birthing fears? I am having a hard time deciding what is best for the baby.
