has it seriously been over a year!?!
...time flys by when you're having fun :)
Since it's been SO LONG I thought I'd give you a little overview of my year
This was me in February 2013

I would say has been the most notable thing that has transpired in the last year!
We PLANNED and PREPARED as much as we could.
Read studies, measured statistics and risk ratios

After we decided that birth at home was right for us, despite the possible "risks", it was on to the real practical groundwork in preparing for a successful home birth...
