Jumping in to say Hi!
DS was a planned UC that turned into a traumatic hospital birth so I've been taking everything that went wrong with his birth and preparing like a crazy woman to avoid the same problems. I have a very supportive midwife who will leave me alone during labor and birth (she has backed up UCs before) so I'm not going totally alone. Mostly I hired her to clean up afterwards and keep DP out of my way, but don't tell him that
My ideal birth for this baby is to get the pool filled up (we just moved in and have an empty spare bedroom, woot!), shut the door and do my thing solo
My mom volunteered to pick up DS and watch him at her house so I don't have to worry about him. She's been super supportive of homebirth and I think she even planned to UC with my younger brother but panicked at the last minute (literally, he was a 2 hour labor!). Everyone else in the family who knows I'm planning a homebirth thinks I'm crazy, I'm just so thankful to have my mom's support
