Hi ladies! I didn't sign up for a lodge, but I did rely on you mommas a lot for advice and encouragement, so I wanted to share my birth story. It's posted on my March '12 birth board... http://www.pregnancy.org/bulletinboards/showthread.php?690758-Clara-Marissa-is-here!-%28warning-long-birth-story!%29-PICS-added&p=8887592#top
It wasn't the intervention-free birth I was planning, but it was empowering and an amazing experience. DH who was so skeptical of natural childbirth turned out to be incredibly supportive in the moment and is now embarrassing me by bragging to anyone who will listen about how his wife gave birth. He is also totally sold on midwifery and was impressed with how they were there for me through it all. He said "I was the only physician in the room and I was the most ill-equipped person to attend that birth."
Thanks again for all the support!!
