Congratulations on your choice to birth your own child! I am in Oregon and I know different places treat this situation differently but this is my experience. I saw my doctor until 27 weeks and then just quit going to my appoinments. I didnt plan on seeing that doctor afterwards so I didnt have to worry about anything being awkward or being questioned. I never informed him of my decision before hand. I would ignore the phone calls because I didnt know what to tell them....
I had the same feelings. I was almost worried, then it hit me that labor could be imminent so I began poking around.

To my understanding, there is nothing illegal about UC & not taking your child to the doctors. I have not come across any stories where CPS has taken children due to those reasons. I have been advised however, to hold off trying to get the birth certificate for a couple weeks though, because when officials see a...
I have a couple concerns about birthing on my own without a midwife & would like suggestions from women who have experienced this themselves.   A little information on my pregnancy:   I saw an OBGYN for the first 32 weeks of my pregnancy, because my insurance paid for it, with the intention of seeing a midwife for the last 8 weeks prenatal, the birth, & the postnatal care. I have talked with the midwife from the beginning. At 32 weeks, I was informed by the...
