    I love the community and support I find on BBH, the links are great too! I had my first child with a CNM in the hospital, it was totally natural despite the unnatural environment. My second birth was last Dec, at home where we belonged! I believe the more women (and men!) who unite and educate others, the better our world could be for mothers and babies. Keep up the great work!

  2. Jenn says:

    I joined BBH after meeting Kaitlin on My Best Birth. She is very inspiring and she’s a breath of fresh air. I love the community of Facebook because I relate to the women. I’ve had 1 hospital birth and 1 homebirth, and currently planning my second homebirth (not pregnant yet though).

  3. Taylor Lahmer says:

    I love your post and the very empowering message that it sends for women everywhere. My sister in law Crystal is a very big supporter for you guys. She follows you guys and participates as well. Everyone should have a choice on their birthing options regardless of who agrees or not. Good luck to everyone especially on getting more rights for these wonderful birthing options :)

  4. BabyBloomDoula says:

    I love your website and the help you give women who are looking at having a home birth. I also enjoy connecting with other moms who have had one.

  5. Kailyn says:

    I’m 7 and a half months pregnant and the father of my child isn’t in the picture. I have found the newsletters a huge encouragement in preparing for my home birth espesicially going into it alone. I love BBH and have found the information so helpful to bring peace to my mind!

  6. Becca says:

    I love your blog! I had a home birth with my first baby and plan on having another with my second, due in April. It’s amazing to have a forum to be able to speak and learn about others experiences. It’s very empowering and educational to spread the word to other women about the benefits of of having your baby at home!

  7. Julie A Badiou says:

    I support Bring Birth Home because I am a firm believer that the majority of births do not need medical attention that the hospital has to offer. I like the FB page because it keeps relevant information on my wall and I like the support of others with the same ideals.

  8. Amy Phair says:

    I found BBH while looking for information and advice on home birth. I had two natural births in hospital and even though i got by natural births too many things happened to me and to both my babies which were so so wrong and upsetting to say the least. i can’t even express how horrified i am at some of what went on. When we get pregnant again we will be hiring a private midwife and homebirthing :D i only wish we had known more sooner… we were lucky enough to be more informed than most for our first and second births so we knew enough to refuse a lot of what went on… but it was still far from ideal… now that we know better, we will do better :)

  9. Amy Phillips says:

    I was not able to have a home birth, but very much wanted to be at home! I am thankful to say I had 2 natural childbirths in a military hospital & enjoyed very peaceful births. I love reading the blog posts & reading the info to help women prepare for natural childbirth. I am an advocate for homebirthing when possible & hope to experience a home birth myself!

  10. Melynda says:

    I originally found BBH in my attempt to gather information before my homebirth last July. What I have found in the BBH community is an amazing group of like-minded women with a huge base of knowledge and an unbelielvable amount of support. I love that I am able to go to the BBH FB page when I have a question and that I can usually find the answer asked by someone else going through the same thing. I have also posted my own advice and experiences to help other women who may need the support. BBH is, for the most part, a very non-judgemental group of people who share many of the same core beliefs and values. BBH is like coming home.

  11. Claire Ballinger says:

    I was recommended your site via facebook and as I have had a wonderful birth at home and am an activist for natural birth, I repost as much as I can about what I believe, which is on the same page as you. I’m in my second pregnancy, feeding a toddler, and planning a second homebirth so we have a lot in common!

  12. Nicole says:

    I love BBH! Your posts are always so positive and uplifting which I find so refreshing. It’s nice to connect with other homebirth mamas on the FB page.

  13. Poppy says:

    It is just awesome to have like-minded individuals to support/get support from, commiserate with and ask for and offer advice. I consider everyone at BBH my peeps. We are caring women
    We are strong women
    We are warriors our souls will never die

  14. Andi Bingham says:

    It has given me the confidence I need to have my next birth at home after three hospital births! We plan on having another in 3 years and already plan on at home. My husband is finally confident we can do this lol Thank You !!!

  15. Mariel says:

    I joined BBH shortly after my own homebirth 13 months ago. I needed a community of likeminded mamas who understood my desire and passion toward natural and home birth. Imnow on the road to becoming a doula!

  16. Mary says:

    I enjoy reading about other mamas who’ve had homebirths. I believe every mother should have the option to give birth wherever and with whomever she wishes.
    Thanks for making BBH!

  17. Margaret Contard says:

    I don’t personally need the info provided as I am 64, but I do enjoy reading all the latest research and info.
    In addition, my BDiL is a Doula and Birth Coach in the Denver area. This helps me keep up to date on the changes in her areas of expertise.

  18. Claudia Faucheux says:

    I feel like I belong here. I love the connection with so many different women, from different walks of life, with different stories. Through this miraculous thing we have all(or soon will)experienced called giving birth at home or out os hospital, we are bonded in a special way. <3

  19. shawna says:

    OMG I want a fertility bracelet. Who am I kidding I want anything fertility at this point. LOL I love this site I share with my facebook followers so much I have to post an ” I’m still not pregnant post weekly!! I am just soaking up all of the info I can and storing it away for further use for our UC-one day :( Thanks so much for what you do!

  20. I’m 17 weeks pregnant with my 2nd, planning a home birth this time, and also a doula. I love the info and quotes that I find on your FB and Blog! It’s great info for me and to pass along to my clients as well!

  21. Sariah says:

    I support BBH because I truly believe in educating more women about having options for birth. I love being able to share links or articles about home birth advocacy.
    BBH, along with other home birth advocacy pages, are my only source of support. So, thank YOU!

  22. Amy says:

    I birthed two babies at home and am trying to conceive my third! I am also a doula and former home birth midwife’s assistant. I am passionate about home birth and love what you do to empower women!

  23. Mallory says:

    I lobe BBH because you give such a wonderful and natural act a voice. In the town I love in we don’t have midwives and are left with only the medical/ hospital approach. I believe that birth is natural and shouldnt be so complicated with medical interventions (unless needed of course). I’m thankful that there are pages like BBH to shone some light on this topic.

  24. Melissa says:

    I’m a home birth mama and advocate, this brings support, makes me connected, and empowers me to share more about birthing at home…

    I literally check this site every time I’m on fb/blogging.

    Thank you for what you do. Brings a voice to this lost “right”. xo

  25. Amanda says:

    I love your blog and rad your posts on Facebook. Women like you help to empower women to have the births they desire.
    Having had a hospital birth and home birth….home birth is where it is at.
    Thanks for empowering!!

  26. Kristal says:

    I love Bring Birth Home. I found you all on Facebook through a friend, and love the principles behind it all, and wish that I had the confidence to birth my last child at home. Through this site and ones like it, I am learning to let go of the fear that has kept me in the hospital and out of my comfort zone. I would LOVE this necklace.. it would be an honor that represents my journey this far and my ultimate goal to get to the birth and experience that I hope for in the future.

  27. Bee Lauher says:

    I’m a HomeBirth Midwife in California and love seeing/reading the about the open hearts and countless people who support HomeBirth and healthy child raising! Thanks for your motivation!

  28. babz says:

    this site has brought me a measure of loving confidence to point to , to bring home a bit of beauty in my thirty five year battle to return birth to each individual woman. ooo the trend caught on…

  29. Dena says:

    Homebirths are awesome and safe. Thank you so much for the facebook community. I love the information and articles shared there.

  30. Amanda says:

    I love BBH. It has been a great resource and a great place to network with other mamas.
    I hospital birth our 1st son and while it wasn’t traumatic, it just wasn’t what I had hoped for. On New Year’s Eve, we had a homebirth with our second. It was an absolutely amazing experiance. Even my husband, who was on the fence about it, admitted that it was definitely the better way to go. <3

  31. Bethany says:

    I love BBH and it has led to to believe in myself enough that I know that baby #4 will be my first homebirth baby!

  32. Sarah C. says:

    I support BBH because it’s natural! I wasn’t able to have a homebirth with my first, but I hope my future children are all born at home. :)

  33. Jenn says:

    I’m new to your site but it is beautiful and I’m glad to have found it :)
    I have 2 gorgeous boys but wasn’t able to have a homebirth for either :( That being said, I love the idea of homebirth and fully support it and all my friends who have given birth at home.

  34. Brandon P. says:

    I support BBH because it gives people who are curious about home birth a good outlook on the home birthing community. My wife and I were fortunate enough to find out about home birth when she was 4 months along and we decided home birth was what we wanted. We are so happy that we made that decision. Now that we are planning baby#2, we can’t wait for another home birth! YAY!

  35. Susan P. says:

    I am a proud Grandmama of my granddaughter who was born at home on 9/27/09. I had no idea about this option, but my daughter did her research and realized that giving birth at home was a wonderful option. I am so happy and proud that she did! My Husband and I were able to drive from San Diego to Arizona just in time to watch my granddaughter being born. It was truly AMAZING!

    I am a huge supporter of BBH for so many reasons. I hope that others will do their research and find BBH and get all the information they need to make the best choice for THEM.

  36. Rebecca says:

    I had an HBAC over a year ago, but it affects me profoundly every single day of my life, just like my c-section birth continues to as well. This blog has an opportunity to affect so many women, and I will continue to recommend it to all my pregnant friends for the tremendous support it provides.

  37. Tristen says:

    I am very much for birthing out of hospitals, I just had my first baby in a stand alone birth-center. I was able to have the birth I had hoped for, but my labor was so short that my midwives suggested I consider birthing at home for any future babies.
    The information I have read since my birth and support I’ve seen has really encouraged me towards birthing at home.

  38. Soshanna says:

    I have had 2 beautiful homebirths and now help coordinate our local homebirth support group. I love your blog and get lots of interesting information to pass onto clients. I am a HypnoBirthing Practitioner and many of my clients end up birthing at home. Keep up the good work!

  39. annette says:

    I love being a part of Bring Birth Home because it reenforces everything that deep down I know is true.
    Thanks so much for hosting this giveaway, the prize is stunning!! :)

  40. Rachel says:

    I support BBH and I’ve gained a ton of information from the Bring Birth Home community at Facebook. My sister-in-law has had 2 homebirths and most people discourage her. It wasn’t anything I’d heard of but wanted to learn about it to support her. She’s preparing for her 3rd and I’d love to give this to her.

  41. Joanna says:

    I enjoy Bring Birth Home because I recently made the choice to have a home birth and am so proud of it! I just found out I am pregnant and am so excited! I love the updates and articles BBH shares; they are so inspirational. I hope to reach out to more women just like BBH is doing about having births at home and to empower women to make their own choices. I support BBH because I support home births and women choosing what’s best for them.

  42. Brooke says:

    I just have to say Thank You!! I was the winner of this beautiful piece and am so in love with it!!!! I will be wearing it for a long time but especially during my upcoming homebirth!
