  2. What a wonderful story! I always wanted to have a home birth, but it was not meant to be; I 'm just thankful my babies survived! I did have five natural births so I take blessings were given. Thanks for sharing your story.

  7. So wonderful, so honest. I'm a sucker for a good birth story. I had three natural births: first with a Dr. in a hospital, second with a midwife in a birthing tub at home, third with a midwife in a hospital. All different, all natural.
    Thanks so much for sharing such a wonderful story. Welcome to the world, little one.

  9. P.S.- your birth story is very similar to the birth of my son.... especially the denial part! Looking back, it was so obvious that he was coming, but I ignored all the signs because I don't think I was quite ready mentally!

  11. Love it :) Congrats again on a beautiful birth and baby.

    It does make me wish that I'd known home birth was an option in Iowa (my home state), as I would have encouraged my sister to look into it.

  12. YEAH! That lovely Mama Crunchy Domestic Goddess is so my blogging inspiration! What a small world!

    So glad your birth was as beautiful as can be. Mine was a bit more...uh...complicated. lol. But I have moved on finally. It took lots of forgiveness, which I should never have felt I needed to even do.

    Hugs,
    Jen
