    Default Intro - Baby #3, planning Outdoor HB

    Hi ladies! I was directed over here from the July DDC

    Baby #2 was a HB and we're planning another one. We're living in a new state so MW will be new, will meet with her closer to 12wks.

    I'm a very low-intervention mama, I pretty much only do the 20wk scan to check for physical anomalies but other than that I decline all tests.

    We're on a homesteading/off-grid journey with our two girls. We have 15 acres of land and plan to give birth outside, maybe a water birth like the others (well water LABOR at least with the other two), we'll see how it goes.

    Excited to be here and read through y'alls resources!

    Oh, and if you're interested I do the "Bradley" method kinda. I just breathe real slow and relax during birth.

    Welcome and good luck! Outdoor birth seems awesome...if only I lived in a rural area...and wasn't due in January. There's always next time though!

    Welcome! I am planning my 2nd homebirth in April/May with my 4th child. I hope your outdoor birth works out for you, I have a friend who had an outdoor birth with her 3rd child.

    Really? How did she do it? I'm not finding many stories/videos of women birthing outdoors in the US. I'm totally curious as to what she did LOL!

    Well, she did it in her backyard, she lives around the corner from me, and we live in a city, but her yard is very well treed and the neighbours are not too close by, so it's fairly private. She just asked her midwife if she would be fine with that and her midwife said yes. I don't know many other details about her birth. We are in Canada though, not the US. Not that I would think country would make the difference. I wouldn't be comfortable with outside birth, but my neighbours can see right into my backyard and they are pretty close even though it is fully fenced, also the weather in Canada in April could be snow, so it would likely not be comfortable at all :P

    Three of DD's 4 births were outdoors in their backyard hot tub. The second birth had to be in their sun room due to cold weather in early May. This was in Alberta, Canada.
