post #61 of 61
I have employed a midwife to come to my home when I am laboring so that we go to the hospital as late as possible. She will do almost constant monitoring, we will be well aware of red flags etc. I had a very bad hosptial birth with my last baby and want to be at home for as long as its reasonable.

On the other hand, I have to be realistic. I have had multiple c/s's and all my placentas have always been over my incision site. My vaginal births have had very fast pushing phases. I trust my body to birth, but I dont trust my incision not to split open and have me and my baby dead before we are at the end of the road.
