My Home Birth Story

I'm so excited to finally be sharing Diana's home birth story with all of you! This was my second baby and first home birth! There were a lot of unexpected surprises during this pregnancy, some absolutely amazing and some totally terrifying! All the videos were recorded 1 week after I gave birth to our baby girl. I know there are a lot of women choosing a home birth over a hospital birth during the COVID-19 pandemic, so I couldn't think of a better time to tell you my home birth story!

I am proud to say that I am a professional doula with Well Rounded Momma and it was with these selfless women that I formed my birth team. I would like to thank my wonderful midwife Sherry Hopkins and her midwife assistant Caprice Salas-Woodall and of course my doula Emily Encinosa. If you are in the Las Vegas area and are thinking about a home birth (especially during these uncertain times with COVID-19) I can't think of anyone better than the women of Well Rounded Momma!

Getting pregnant and that time I totally failed trying to surprise my husband with my pregnancy!
