can all you mama's help me...

i need some good links/info on homebirths and waterbirths! i'm sure i could search but i'd bet anything you all know some great places to look

i'm very interested in trying a homebirth this time around (i'm only 4w 5d... so still lots of planing time!) or at the minimum, a waterbirth. i think assuming i don't have another set of twins i'm in the right place physically and emotionally to try it.

i'm just in need of a good place to start! oh, and info for dh cause he said he has no clue what to even think about it, but didn't knock it down! he's getting crunchier by the day

TIA!

Hey Danielle - I don't know a whole lot about homebirthing, we have such great birthing centers here in the area, I just love that option! We did waterbirth with DD. It was WONDERFUL. Although I keep my mind open to whatever needs to happen and is working - I can't imagine doing it another way!

Here's a great resource on waterbirth http://www.waterbirth.org/mc/page.do.

If you're not talking about an unassisted homebirth, I'd just start interviewing midwives in the area. All of the ones here are happy to do a 'free' interview type thing so you can see if they're a good fit. MW's are just such great resources for all that info.

GL!!!
