Today's guest is Nicolette Gawthrop who has two home birth stories to tell with another baby on the way! This episode was so fun for me to record because Nico and I had the same midwife. We ended up talking so much that I'm only sharing her first home birth story in this episode and will be back to share the rest of her story later in the year.

Thanks for a great 2015 of The Birth Hour and Happy New Year! Today is my daughter's birthday so last night my husband and I recorded her birth story in honor of her special day. For her birth we planned a home birth attended by an amazing midwife and my husband and I reminisce about everything from finding out we were expected to how the birth affected our relationship as parents and as a couple.
Kacie tells the stories of her two homebirths.
For this episode, I got to record my first in person birth story interview with the beautiful, talented and sweet Kacie Case. Kacie is a mama to two boys named Eddy and Rocky and lives with her husband and kiddos in Austin, TX (hey that's where I live too!). Kacie is also a small business owner and makes adorable printed tees for babies, toddlers and kids atmamacase prints.
Kacie and I poured some wine and got right down to talking about her two beautiful and empowering homebirths. I love that Kacie attended her two brother's homebirths when she was growing up and had the honor of cutting their umbilical cords. Pretty much from that moment, Kacie was destined to have some kickass homebirths of her own.
Allie Floyd, who had a hospital birth with her 11 year old daughter and just recently had a homebirth, discusses the difference in her birth experiences and how empowered and amazing she felt after her recent homebirth.

Welcome to The Birth Hour! In this episode, Indiana Adams, blogger, conference planning guru and budding podcaster shares her well known birth stories. She has had three homebirths, and none of them have been void of excitement. I'll break it down for you in short form by hitting on the highlights.
First Birth - Precipitous labor, homebirth, washcloth of modesty.
Second Birth - Even MORE precipitous, unassisted, the toilet is a major player.
Third Birth - Unaware of baby's presence until 17 weeks gestation, natural induction at home, STILL precipitous.
You'll have to listen to Indiana tell it in her own words on this episode of The Birth Hour.
