Our Baby Girl’s Home Birth Story: Part 2

This is the second and final part of our baby girl's home birth story. If you're just joining us, you can read Part 1 here! After much talking and convincing from my husband, I finally (reluctantly) agreed that he could call our midwife. After getting off of the phone with her, he told me that she was going to start getting ready and would leave her house in about 30-40 minutes.  That meant that we still had a good solid hour (at least) before she would arrive. The next hour went by very quickly for me.  My contractions were as intense as ever at this point, and I wasn't getting much … [Read more...]

Confessions of a Cloth Diaper Convert {The eBook launch you don’t want to miss!}

My friend Erin from The Humbled Homemaker has outdone herself! She has written an AWESOME eBook all about cloth diapering that I would have done anything to have when I first started cloth diapering almost 3 years ago.

(Read my post 10 Reasons I Love My Cloth Diapers to see … [Read more...]

Our Baby Girl’s Home Birth Story: Part 1

Home_Birth_Story

This is the home birth story of our precious little baby girl who is now 1 month old. Our firstborn child was born in a hospital, so this was a very different experience for us compared to our first birth story. I'm honestly thankful that I've been able to experience both a hospital birth (complete with pitocin and an epidural) and now a home birth.  Both were beautiful in their own unique way! It was around 3:00 in the afternoon when I started timing my contractions.  I was 3 days past my due date with our second child - a girl to help even the score in the house.  After she was born the … [Read more...]
