Nick Stanton's (nearly famous) Homebirth Page

Who am I?

I'm Nick Stanton, aged 37 and I live in Poole, on the south coast of England

I'm married to Tracy and have 3 wonderful children, Josh, Ben and Mimi, aged 7, 5 and 3

Homebirth

Mimi was born at home, and like many parents who have been fortunate enough to have experienced a home-birth I am now a keen supporter. Feel free to read Tracy's birth report. If you've any questions or concerns about homebirth then please drop me a line and I'll try and help with an answer. I'm particularly interested in hearing from fathers, since their concerns are often very different from the mother's. My only experience of homebirth is in the UK, but I welcome any mail from anywhere.

What do I do?

Am I a medical or birthing expert? Not at all. During the day, and often at other times too, I'm a engineering project managerworking for a major telecoms company here in Poole.

What does Tracy do?

Tracy is a Trustee with the National Childbirth Trust (NCT), a British charity which offers information and support in pregnancy, childbirth and early parenthood, and aims to enable every parent to make informed choices. If you want any information about the Trust then mail Tracy. See also the NCT Home Page.

Where's this all going?

Since October 1995, I've been running the world's only internet homebirth mailing list. There are currently about 150 friendly people from all over the world who share ideas and experiences and offer support. They consist of professional midwives, mothers and fathers. People who have tried it, people who want to try it, people who just want information. If you'd be interested in subscribing to this list then drop a line to this address.
