I had a homebirth w/ DS. It was long and difficult (for me) but ended well. I'm pregnant w/ #2 and have the same birth team set up, but I feel just... scared about this birth. Not about the pain, etc... but that something will go wrong. I don't know why. I did read a birth story where the woman had a placental abruption that wasn't discovered until her water broke well into her labor. She was at a hospital, and she and her baby lived. I don't know if that is where my fear is coming from, or maybe b/c I haven't read all the powerful pregnancy books that I read last time again. Maybe it's simply just being more aware of the fragilty of life now?
Does anyone have suggestions as to how to work through these fears? I don't want to deliver at a hospital as long as I'm low-risk, and I trust my midwife's skills. I just don't know how to get rid of this icky feeling. :(
