View Full Version : Another reason to be online!
I've been lurking a little, and want to join in.
My name is Angie and I have one son who is 14 months old - Tyler.
We live about half way between the gold coast and Brisbane.
I tend towards the Natural Parenting side of things - co-sleeping, extended breastfeeding, baby wearing etc.
I am currently ttc baby no2, and will plan another homebirth, as I loved planning the first one.
Looking foward to getting to know you all a litte more.
I just want to say how lucky you were to have a home birth, I certainly wish I had. I had an emergency caeser with my first at 34 weeks, and am now not looking foward to my third in early September.
nice to meet you!!! :p everyone is different and seems to respect that a great deal on this site, but it's nice to see some other natural parenting advocates join in. i am too! i did it drug-free with alice and co-slept for 2 months. still b'feeding at 9 mths and plan to let her self-wean. would love to have a home birth next but DH is a bit against it. so i hope to get into the birth centre for my next baby, as would love a water birth. will you have the same mid-wife and was it expensive to have a home birth??
hope your TTC efforts are soon rewarded!!
Yes the homebirth was expensive - $2,000, but was worth every cent.
My midwife looked after me throughout my whole pregnancy, obviously was there for the labour, (which actually ended up to be a transfer) and then did check ups for the first six weeks after.
It was so lovely because I really got to know her, and she seemed like another member of the family.
It is annoying homebirth isn't claimable anywhere, because you really are saving 'the system' a lot of money, but nothing would induce me to voluntarily give birth in a hospital.
Dh and I are looking into moving to WA soon, so unfortunately I won't be able to use the same midwife - as much as I would love to.
Anyway - here's hoping for a BFP sometime real soon!
I have a litle one just a month older than yours - did you go thru the same worrries when you were buying baby things (ie new cots etc) or were you more confident?
I was definitely not confidant buying baby stuff!
While I was pregnant, I would venture into a baby shop and have a bit of a panic attack, as I am the youngest in my family, and really haven't been exposed to babies much.
I am such a tomboy, I actually don't like accessories, and frilly bits and cute little clothes etc, so couldn't get into that side of it.
I got off the hook though, because we co-sleep, I didn't set up a nursery at all, and never had to buy a cot. :)
