Out of curiosity, I was wondering what was so horrible about your unplanned unassisted homebirth? I am interested in hearing the story. I had one, but it was wonderful, but would like to hear what other experiences have been like. I have to say that mine might be different, too, because I had expected the possibility and so was mentally and physically (meaning, had supplies on hand) ready in case. In reality, it was prompted by a very similar case as you have right now. I was GBS+ I had actually retested and was found negative, but none of the back up doctors for the birth center would allow me to ditch the antibiotics. I have some very strong opinions and objections about the current protocol and use of antibiotics for laboring women with GBS, on top of suffering bad effects from them myself. To me, the choices were: refuse the antibiotics, which would mean I would not be allowed to go to the birth center and I would have to go to the hospital (I've had a baby in the hospital -- very bad experience despite managing a natural birth), accept the antibiotics and go to the birth center, or try to go to the birth center only when I knew my contractions were really serious and therefore ending up with less or no antibiotics -- which also meant the possibility of an "oops" baby because once I know things are serious I usually only have roughly half an hour or so left. Feeling stuck between a rock and a hard place, I chose the possibilty of the "oops" - and that is exactly what happened and it was the BEST birth ever. I didn't even tear! But then again, as I said, I was prepared for the "in case" and had everything I needed nearby -- including a fishy pool so I could get into the water. After the baby was born, I called the birth center and told them we'd ended up having the baby at home. I did not take the baby to the hospital, but to our regular doctor to be checked out, and then to the birth center so that they could check me out and make sure I didn't tear/retain placenta, etc. Then we went home.
If you do have this baby accidentally at home, do you have to go check you both into the hospital? Can you check only yourself in to be checked and then take our LO to a regular pediatrician? It 'might' avoid some of the fight. It might not, but it is just a thought. You don't seem to mind getting the antibiotics, so at least that is not a mental strain on you. Still, I would do for you what will best facilitate your labor and delivery, then work out the going home details after.
