All of mine have had their cords wrapped twice with no consequence at all. For me - I wouldn't feel safe going...

PLEASE read this thread Can my OB fire me? This is the thread the mom I mentioned started back in October.
I totally understand that you really want your homebirth but honestly there are risks with postdate babies. Some significant. As an example one of the moms on this board recently got irate enough with her OB who wanted to induce at 42 weeks (becuase she didnt' want it) that she fired her OB. Found a homebirth midwife - her NST's had all been fine as well as her BPP's too. Well long story short - she got to the point in herr homebirth that she wanted to transfer for...

If you choose to do it at hoem I'd suggest tryign to do it in the water that way...

OK it sounds liek he has some pretty major issues surrounding birth itself. And I'm all for being as natural as possible but maybe you coudl talk with your caregiver about potentially prescribing somethign for him for his anxiety and at the very least he won't be in freak out mode even if he is completley useless. I'd second the askign him to watch the kids you do have too.
