I'm looking at homebirthing my second child, and I'm more comfortable/relaxed about pregnancy now that I've been through it. But for some reason the idea of having no prenatal care makes me uncomfortable. I'm not judging anyone that has an unassisted pregnancy, I'm just not sure it's for me. However, if I cannot make it to a midwife I'm also pretty uncomfortable with having another c section if I can possibly avoid it. That mostly leaves me with ucing. I am comfortable with having a uc in and of itself, and then going to the hospital like, oopsie! I actually really considered that with my first pregnancy when they pressured me to induce. Has anyone does this, or had a provider okay with you ucing? Did anyone go to a few prenatal visits for general bloodwork, etc before going it on their own? I know I can do my own urine strips, and that ultrasounds often don't mean much, etc, and that this is basically just an issue with me not being ready to go there yet, so please don't think I'm saying unassisted pregnancy is bad.
