Monthly Meetup - Open Q&A

  • Jan 26, 2014 · 12:00 PM
  • Hip Circle Studio

Join us at our first 2014 meetup and bring your questions about homebirth - nothing is off limits!  We'll also be choosing our topics for the year, so be sure to bring those ideas as well.

As always, we'll start the meetup with introductions and a birth story (if someone wants to share) before diving in to the topic.  Children are welcome (but not required), and yes - partners do often attend.  :-)

    Hi I teach ballroom dance and fitness. Children are in my near future and I'm interested in knowing my options before there's a time limit!

    I live in Northwest Indiana and do not know if I can make it to this meet up. I do have so many questions. I am pregnant with my first and am really considering a home birth, but I have some concerns. I emailed the organizer over a week ago, but have not heard back. Is there anyone that would be willing to answer my questions? Thank you for any help you can give.

      I have three kids and they were all born at home, in three different states, including in IL. I may not make it on Sunday, but my # is[masked]-6662. I'm happy to talk, if you want.

      I can't thank you all enough. I live about 2 hours away and do not think I can get out of my plans to make it Sunday. I am sure I will make it to a meet up before baby comes, but I am a worry wart and would love to know more now in the early stages of pregnancy.

    My husband and I may attend... but this is two days before my due date! :)
    So, I guess what I'm trying to say is, my Yes RSVP depends on the little one.

    We have a large number of "yes" responses for next week's meetup - please update your response if your plans have changed and, if you're coming, be ready to sit on the floor! The first 16 to arrive get dibs on a chair. :-)

    We will be starting and ending on time as well due to other classes happening before and after at the studio. The door will be open at 11:45 am if you'd like to arrive a bit early.

    I look forward to seeing/meeting you all soon!

    I wish there were a "maybe" rsvp choice....I may or may not have had the baby by then!

      I came with my 10 day old baby in the July meeting.

  • JeraSue

    Hi there! Has there been one for November? I thought I saw a meetup for November on a calendar somewhere... I'm a "maybe" for that reason too, Tara :)

    • Malik

      Sorry - the November meetup didn't get posted here (it was supposed to have been yesterday) so we cancelled it. I am having surgery on Friday and won't be up to hosting a December one, so January is our next opportunity.

    I will be out of town. I'm glad that you are planning for another year. If anyone wants to consider a private birth options consultation just let me know and I will be glad to let you know more. Apartment Birth is always popular! I vote for that topic. Many parents think they must have a house to have a home birth. This is not true!
