Re: My Unexpected Unassisted Homebirth

Congratulations! My water almost broke before labor started (lol don't ask me why I think that; it's weird!) and I think that if it had I would have had a baby even faster than I did
So glad that you had a fast easy birth and a healthy baby!

I have to laugh at all the preparations we had and never used - candles, essential oils, a birthing pool, energy drinks. You just never know.

Re: My Unexpected Unassisted Homebirth

your story sounds similar to mine, except no one made it to the birth, just DH and I. I said "catch him" he said "what" I said "the baby!!" ours was very unexpected, my DH wasn't "on board" with a home birth either, guess he shoulda been more prepared, lol!!
