Brad and I went to see two midwives today. Brad wanted to make sure that a home birth was a safe option for us and that the chance for complications was low enough to not have the worry of rushing to hospital. I think it went very well. The midwives, Laura and Robin, have worked together for years and they were both so helpful and knowledgeable. If we do decide to go with them, my first appointment will be around the end of March at about 9 weeks!
According to Laura, my due date is November 1. I am glad because originally, I had the date of October 31, and I really didn't want to have a Halloween baby. Well, that still may happen, but at least that's not my due date!
