I met a woman a few weeks ago who had a dramatic birthing experience. This is her first child and the birth was not the way she wanted- natural with no medical intervention. Instead, she had a…Continue

Hi mamas!

I had my son on July 5, 2009 in a freestanding birth center. It was such a great experience and I wouldn't have wanted it any other way. Labor started at around 6am, I stayed home until I went to get checked at 1:30pm. I thought for sure I was going to get sent home, but I was 5cm! I went to my room (with a nice tub and queen sized bed) and walked around then eventually got in the water. Labor was really easy until I had her break my water at 6:45pm, I was 8cm at that point. Contractions didn't seem to stop at that point and the tub wasn't helping too much anymore. I was having back labor and it hurt a bit. I finally got on the birth stool and started pushing, an hour and a half after I started pushing my son was born at 10:52pm.
He's the most perfect baby ever! If I have another one I want to have a homebirth

Hello everyone,

Adventures of a Somewhat Crunchy Mama just did a series of guest blogs about birth options. Since I have 7 children delivered through everything from an emergency cesarean with my first to 2 homebirths she asked me to write the wrap-up post.

I'd be thrilled to get feedback or questions.

My next New York City Moms blog post is up and running!

It’s called Natural Birth, Duggar Style. Take a look!

This should generate some interesting comments (or heated discussion?). What do you think, do you feel — like me — that more women could achieve a natural birth if they had educated themselves more about how the hospital is set up to push you into c-sections and believed more strongly in their ability to give birth naturally (hey, I did it, and I am no superwoman)?

Hi everyone! I'm new here and hope its okay that I joined. We have one child, that I delivered naturally, and don't plan to have anymore. But I am very passionate about natural childbirth. If any moms new to the world of natural birthing would like to chat you can ask me anything! I gave birth to our daughter on 9-23-08 without my husband there, without a doctor and without any meds. It was just me, my mom (who's not a "natural birther" herself) and one very inexperienced nurse. I didn't use a doula, and honestly don't feel like I needed one, but as soon as my Lucy is in K5 I'm going to start trying to be one.

If you want to chat in private send me a message on here or to I look forward to getting to know you ladies!

Debbie~Have you used a doula? I hired one for both of my natural births and she was wonderful. She had a lot of information available as well. Congratulations on your little surprise!!

What a great group! I am a SAHM to six lovely children. After my fourth was born, I declared I was done having children, but God had other things in mind. When I was pregnant with my 5th, I started doing some research on NCB. I had had increasing complications with the drugs in the epidurals and my fourth birth scared me. And so I hired a doula and had my 5th baby naturally. I then went on to have my 6th the same way. I don't know if we'll have any more children, but I plan to never go back to the epidural!

Ask any pregnant woman and she will tell you that now she’s expecting what once smelled delicious  - like roasting coffee beans for example, has suddenly become the one smell that induces an overwhelming feeling of nausea. For some women the pregnant nose goes into smell overdrive with incredible detection ability, in fact increased smell sensitivity can save lives. Just ask your local gas company – pregnant…

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
