I have been thinking about this since my last birth almost 1 1/2 years ago. I just found out we are expecting again (yay!), and I really want a UC. I have had midwife assisted hb for my two kids, and I'm just disappointed kind of. I want to do it myself with no poking, prodding, and fear (unfortunately, that's how the few m/w here are, and SO not supportive of UC either).
I'm kind of scared though, because my labors are long (1st over 50 hours, 2nd 30 hours from water breaking), and I bleed a lot from unknown causes during labor (but not after). My biggest fear is that I'll be stuck in the middle of another marathon labor, with no one to ask advice of that has knowlege and wisdom. I also want a UP, but IF there is an emergancy, I don't want me and baby treated like we have the plague.
Anyone with experiences like mine? Any wisdom to share?
