I really am leaning to a opps.....but here is my dilema...help me think this out.
I live in Mexico along the Mexico/Texas border. I live about 10-15 min from Texas.
I am going to a free standing birth center in texas for prenatal care.
i had my last baby at home in the USA with a midwife and she was awesome... hands off...with everything, she showed up 30 min before baby came. It was a water birth.
This is baby #5 for me and I really want to just stay at home. I have not been able to find a midwife that will come to Mexico nor have i found a midwife in mexico.
The only problem i forsee is this....if i opps...how hard will it be to get the babies paper work to cross the baby over into the US. What if there is an emergency...and i need to take baby into the US for medical care....i would not want to take baby to a hospital here in Mexico...i've had not so good expierences here in Mexico with hospitals and doctors.
I will need to go through alot of stress to get the babies passport and papers to take him/her into the US.
This really is the only reason i would cross over to go to the birth center.
Im not sure what info the US embassy would need if the baby came here on the Mexico side at home!
I can not find much information on that.
There is info out there for a hospital birth abroad...but not homebirth abroad.
Any ideas mama's?
