    I had one for my first child (actually, it was my midwife, who stayed with me in the hospital when I had to be induced).

    I had two for my second, who was born at home. I was only a 50 minute labor, but the home birth was planned. It was so wonderful to have one person helping me to the shower and one changing the bed, while my husband attended the baby, then made me a great big fruit smoothie!

    It was such a different experience from the hospital!

    Thank you for taking on such an important role! I wish you all the best in your new career. :-)

    Once the bear eats your friend, there's no one left to outrun. And it'll still be hungry.
