    A Mom Of Five’s Experiences Having Hospital Births + Home Births

    I’ve been able to have five natural births. Most might find that statement incredibly scary but looking back at each one, there was a lesson and for the most part, a great experience resulting in the birth of one of my children.  I am sharing my experience because I have been able to see the differences between the types of births and I feel like it’s important for me to advocate for other women learning about them and deciding which one they want for their birth experience. I am not sharing medical advice, just my own experience. My births have each been very different from one another… the first two…

    Baby Prep Is Underway

    dress | bag | shoes  happy Thursday ya’ll! I cannot believe that another week is flying by. I am 36 weeks pregnant and next Monday, I have an appointment with my OBGYN to be cleared for my home birth. I’ve gotten several questions about why I am having a home birth – especially because this is my first time but my fourth pregnancy. I just wanted to share a little about why I made my decision and give any incite for anyone who is wondering about having one. With Nolan and Harper, I had hospital births. I’m not going to go into major detail here but the experiences were less…
