    I totally agree with everything you’ve said- birthing your baby should be a spiritual experience. You’re a healthy young woman and I don’t see any reason a home birth would be unsafe for you. If something comes up they can always take you to the hospital, but most likely it will be a beautiful experience! Best of luck to you!!

    I did a home birth with my second and it was a truly amazing and wonderful experience. Of course, I had my first birth to compare it to and I didnโ€™t like being in a hospital at all. It made it easier to pick doing a home birth because I had something to compare it to. Also, my second was a 10 lb boy and it was still way easier than the first birth. Best of luck to you in this whole process!

      Love hearing your story, Jehda. I have spoken to many women that have had their first in the hospital and second at home, and prefer the latter. I’m glad it was amazing! I’m hopeful mine will be as well ๐Ÿ™‚ xoxo

    While I did not have a home birth, I gave birth to my daughter in a warm tub using the Bradley Method. There are many birthing options to choose from; I found this one nice because it includes your spouse in the birthing process as well! Best of luck to you Mama…women are super heroes!

    Thank you for sharing your birth plan! We are due in 7 weeks and can’t wait to meet our sweet boy. Having an at home birth has always been in the back of my mind. I’m lucky I have an amazing OBGYN and the hospital I delivered at here in Austin, TX with my last two was nothing short of a wonderful experience. So happy for you and look forward to watching your journey ๐Ÿ™‚

      Hi Patricia – currently a 23 week pregnant Austin gal myself! I’m so impressed with anyone who chooses a home birth (You go Kasey!) but I feel like my journey will likely be in a hospital. Do you mind sharing which hospital it was that you had a wonderful experience at here in ATX?!? Thanks!!

    Fully support doing what makes you the most comfortable and happy!! I switched from a traditional OBGYN to a midwife at 36wks bc of how the OBGYN responded to my wishes for l&d (literally laughed and used the words gross and ew) and it was the best decision i made for me and my baby!

    Hi Kasey!

    I live an hour or so south of you and have found a really phenomenal doctor that delivered my son and serves as our family doc. I trust her implicitly and she has been nothing but supportive and encouraging in all facets of our health and wellbeing. If youโ€™re interested I would be more than happy to pass her information along to you.

    Sending my best to you and babe โค๏ธ

    This is awesome! I love how empowering pregnancy and birth are for women. Good for you for being open to alternative birth plans and allowing yourself to find whats right for you. That being said… my best friend is a NICU nurse turned mid-wife in MI. It’s always part her plan to have a fast and safe plan D to get to the hospital fast if the birth calls for it. I am sure you have this plan as well, you seem like a planner:) But I know you guys live a bit out there so wanted to mention it!

    Cant wait to hear more about your journey (ugh, hate that word).
