absolutely! this is baby number four for me and will be a hospital birth (Im really comfortable in hospitals but totally respect the UC choice) and know what? Im still workin through stuff
like...Im really trying to decide if I will ever efface and dialate on my own w/o an epidural or is this just what works for me
this baby will also be born at a hospital that I actually really hate on the emergency services side of things but seems to be my best choice for here...so thats not helping
I don't know if this will be reassuring or not...its meant to be reassuring so I appologize if its not ...most emergency services are very excited to deliver a baby if it ever came down to it! my partner (work partner)and I (she has 5 kids) used to always say at the beginning of our shift that this would be the day we'd earn our stork pins..and another company I worked for had storks with blue or pink bundles depending on gender whenever a baby was born in an ambulance painted on the side of the ambulance
used to always make me smile when I'd be assigned one that had a stork or storks
my own PCP who has two babies herself suggested a home birth for us as did her nurse practitioner (has one babe herself) on a different occasion..not UC but you get my drift..
the point I'm making is...you'd be surprised as to who can be supportive
I think a lot of people ask questions and play the "what if" game because theyre curious and don't realize what kind of anxiety they give moms about it
frankly I don't do it because of my before mentioned anxiety...my first birth was really terrible for me and I never really got over it
plus Im too lazy to deal with any paperwork thats not all laid out for me
it will go fine! you'll both be fine!!!
