My first time posting in here:) I have so many questions...
I am about 5w along, very new and want to start researching options. My first birth was relatively "normal", 6 hrs, very intense, water birth at home with 2 MWs assisting. I did tear, which, IMO, could have been prevented (I pushed real hard and fast, his whole body came out at once and no one was supporting). I got stitched after, the stiches popped a few days later, leaving me in pain for days. I didn't loose much blood, felt fine, all good:)
So...I think I'm a good candidate for unassisted. I will be frequenting this thread, but in the mean time I really want to read up on this. I'm thinking I'll do regular checks w/a MW, is that what ppl usually do? Is there any good websites anyone can recommend? Books? I haven't made any decisions, but feel I could do this. Plus, there are no MWs close to where I'm moving, and w/my first being short, wonder if a MW would make it in time anyway!
I'd love any feedback:)
