What I am looking forward to even more than this home birth is my second home birth, with my first baby there to see it all, and to help me through.
I was really inspired by this video. I watched it before we had decided whether this is what we wanted, and it had a lot to do with the decision.
I'm sure after I become a mother that anytime I need something to calm me or to comfort me, that my child will be exactly what I need, and when I am working through contractions to bring a second child into this world, holding and loving my first child will be wonderful. It would give me something to focus on, and Im sure it would only strengthen the hormones that would already be running through my body.
