Hello to all on the UC thread - whether planning or thinking about it or having done it!
I'm Lisa and I plan to have my baby unassisted this April. This will be my second child, and first UC. I had planned for a UC with the first but went to the hospital after 40 hours of prodomal labour and not really knowing what I was doing. It's a decision I regret every day.
We are going to be living on a remote Island in BC that doesn't have a hospital, but has ambulance service that coordinates with a Medivac Helicopter in case of emergency. I have to admit that it's waaaay outside of what I ever would have considered my comfort zone - the hospital being on another island an all that - but it's just the way it has to be if I am going to have a baby and make myself a cup of tea and sit out on my porch an hour later.
I'm fairly knowledgeable about most things birth and hope that I won't have to use any of my knowledge for complications and that the little bean just slips right out into my hands.
Anyway, that's me in a nutshell and I look forward to spending the next couple of months with you!
Part two of this post is about boards like BornFree and specifically the Canadian UC board.
If anyone has the Canadian UC board info, would they please send me a link? I seem to have lost the info and it's not really turning up in google (big surprise!)
Also, what's the deal with BornFree? I have tried in vain to recover my password, then re-register twice and there is never any response to my registration. Has anyone else had the same problems? I would love to connect with other mothers but can't seem to figure this one out - now it seems as though the forum has disappeared. What's the deal?
Thanks for taking the time to get back to me on this.
All the best!!!
