Southeast Minnesota Home Birth: Indira

Let me start out by saying the body does amazing things. I truly believe that had I not had issues Thursday late night early Friday morning with our noisy neighbors being up I would’ve gone into labor on Friday instead of Saturday. I told my husband Friday morning to be prepared because I felt labor would start between that day and Saturday. I called my midwife LeAnn Friday night and told her I had been having stronger contractions and wanted to give her a heads up, I believe my body knew just how exhausted it was because right around bedtime Friday night all contractions stopped and I got one of the best night’s sleep I had in a long time. It did help tremendously that my husband went out and warned the neighbors that we would not be having any issues with them being up late and being loud that night.

Rochester, MN, Two Great Homebirths - Benjamin and Hazel

When my husband Nathan and I found out we were expecting our first child in 2012 we immediately decided on a home birth.   With my husband being a chiropractor,  we truly believe that the body is designed to work for you and functions at  its best when there is less interference.  Planning a homebirth meant that we had a better chance of a drug free "natural" birth, a healthy mom and healthy baby!

Being pregnant for the first time I was excited but had normal concerns like any expecting woman.   Early on in my pregnancy I had some bleeding and I was worried.  I made my initial prenatal appointment at Mayo and met with the midwives a few times.  We had also been searching for our homebirth midwife.  We liked LeAnn right away and decided that we wanted her to be our midwife.  For the first 20 weeks I saw both LeAnn and the Mayo midwifes.  There was a distinct difference in the care I was receiving.  I decided it was unnecessary to be under Mayo's care and did the remainder of my prenatal care with LeAnn.
