    Well...I wasn't always as upstanding as I am now.

    I'm not really sure what I'm supposed to include here...I guess a little bit about myself?

    I am married, and have been for almost 6 years. DH and I met the day after Thanksgiving in 2000, and got engaged on Christmas Eve of the same year. We were married the following September.

    I am an elementary school teacher turned SAHM. I taught grades 5/6 my first year as a teacher, and then taught kindergarten for three years after that. I quit working one week before Sophie was born, and have stayed home with my kiddos ever since. I don't plan on returning to teaching...I didn't love it. When (if) I return to work, it will definitely be in some capacity related to pregnancy and childbirth. Perhaps as a doula or even a natural childbirth instructor?

    I got pregnant with Sebastian early in my second year of college...about a month or so after I moved out of my parents' house. I was 19 when he was born. His biological dad and I gave it a go, and lived together until Sebastian was not quite a year old. We were kids, and it didn't work out very well. The last time Sebastian's bio-dad saw him was when he was around 18 months old. Sebastian just turned 11 this past weekend. So, my DH has been his "dad" since he was 4 years old. Unfortunately, bio-dad is taking me to court for visitation after all this time...but that's a whole other story.

    Thankfully I have a natural birth supporter as a mom, so she steered me towards a midwife when I was pregnant with Sebastian. I didn't know nearly as much about pregnancy and birth as I do now, but in a way it was a blessing. I never even thought about all the medical interventions that I know about now...the only pregnancy book I had was my mom's copy of Spiritual Midwifery that she had when she was pregnant with my brother and I. I just went through the pregnancy, and didn't think much about what kind of birth I would have. I just kind of did what my midwife told me to do...took Lamaze classes...and that was about it. Thankfully, I had a wonderful, totally natural birth with no interventions whatsoever. My mom was with me...but my midwife kind of took me under her wing. Maybe because I was so young? She was with me from the moment I arrived at the hospital, and never left my side. So, my first birthing experience was very positive. I think I've developed a lot more fear about things since then, but I knew what I was capable of after I had Sebastian.

    Ok...I'm getting long-winded here...I will post some more about Sophie's birth when it's not so late. I'm not sure what else I should include here.

    Yay! Another August mommy! Hearing your stories about having NCB is very inspiring and reassuring (esp for this FTM).

    Good intro Sarah! I think it's awesome that your Mom is so pro-natural and helped steer you that way with Sebastian. You know your body can do it, we just have to ignore everything that is going on in our minds
