Introduction!

Hello Ladies,
I'm Jasmine... I'm about 18 weeks pregnant with our first baby - a little boy! Smile

I'm a "second generation weirdo." My Mother naturally birthed, baby-carried and breastfeed her 5 children way back when it was super weird. So, in early february when I got an unexpected (but completely welcome) BFP, I danced around and then ran to our computer and googled "Portland Birth Centers."

I've found a wonderful community of supportive midwives, and I'm planning to bring our little guy into the world at the center.

Good on you and your mom! My mom remembers when she would bf my brother, her mil (my grandma) would close the drapes in shame.

Welcome to the board and congrats on your pregnancy!

Congrats on your pregnancy!! I'm in Portland as well, I've found Portland to be pretty supportive of natural birthing in general. (I think it's all the hippies...) Wink Heh.

I even gave birth in a hospital with a natural birthing plan and they were extremely supportive of all my birth wishes, though unfortunately mine ended in an emergency c-section. They did everything possible to make that a last resort, though.

Anyway, good luck and welcome!

Hey I think I know you from November! I love scoping out all of these boards seeing who all is on here! Although I know I'm not going for natural childbirth (went down that road with DS #1) that are!
