There's No Place Like Home Birth: Our Home Birth Story Part 2: Made With Love

Alhamdulilah if you have been following along on TMH, I just started learning to knit!! MashaAllah I love it, it's fun, it's relaxing, and I can make things for the ones I love.

So for my second knitting project I made our baby some booties!!! MashaAllah we made the baby two pairs, in prayer we will be placing them on the feet of our baby.


If you have ever made anything with your hands, whether cooking from scratch--- from the foundation, or making clothes... then you know the personal joy it feels to see your family enjoying what you have made and worked hard on.

There's No Place Like Home Birth: Our Home Birth Story Part 1

Am I really about to have our 6th child?
Did we really decide to do this at home?

Questions and more questions and a reality check! YES this is our 6th blessing and YES we are doing this at home.

As time progressed we decided that having this baby at home would be the best decision for us... for our family.



So we're having a home birth... there's nothing much to do at this point? Right?, noooo not the case at all. We prayed and prayed for us to find a midwife that would feel like family and be part of our home, for this home birth.
Allah answered our prayers when He sent us a midwife, that is loving, kind, concerned and genuine.
Alhamdulilah!! Also we are asking for everyone to make duaa and if possible donate towards our experience: Baby Rahim, Home Birth Dream

Tahl…
