After two years of trying and one miscarriage, <b>*the love of my life* </b>and I finally conceived our wonderful beautiful baby.<b> </b> After just one cycle on vitex, my pregnancy test
showed up positive!

We decided to keep my pregnancy a secret from EVERYONE
until we felt it was time to reveal our secret- which ended up being around 4 months.
It is a fact that in a healthy pregnancy, you need to have NO intervention in order to have a healthy birth. This is why, on top of many other reasons, I chose unassisted birth.

I suggest everyone educates themselves on natural birth, and the dangers of interventions.

I cloth diaper because of reduced costs, cuteness, and most importantly so no toxins touch my child. (I recommend prefolds and Soakers)<img src="http://www.keeperofthehome.org/wp/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/baby-with-cute-cloth-diaper-on-bum.jpg" />
I bed-share so that my child feels safe, and because when practiced correctly is reduces the chances of SIDS! I love that we can breastfeed laying down and fall asleep easily!

I also wear my baby. She loves it. Feels good to be close to mommy!
