I AM 29WKS AND WANTING TO HAVE A UC HOME BIRTH

I WILL BE A V-BAC..

MY 1ST CHILD WAS BORN IN THE CAR, ON THE WAY TO BE INDUCED..SHE WAS PERFECTLY FINE N HEALTHY! :)

MY SECOND CHILD WAS AN EMERGENCY C-SECTION....HE WAS PERFECTLY FINE N HEALTHY...

BUT NOW I WANT TO EXPERIENCE A NATURAL HOME BIRTH WITH JUST FAMILY AND FRIENDS THERE..NO INTERVENTIONS OR UNWANTED HANDS!!..

I WANT TO BE CALM N COLLECT IN MY OWN HOME. I WANT TO HIRE A MIDWIFE BUT CANNOT AFFORD TO DO SO... I AM ONLY WORRIED THAT IF I DO A UC, I WILL NEED TO TAKE THE BABE IN FOR A CHECKUP FOR PURPOSES OF BC AND GENERAL CHECKUPS...AND BE SCOLDED FOR DOING AN UC...

ANYONE HAVE ANY SUGGESTIONS ON WHAT OR HOW TO GO ABOUT THIS SUCCESSFULLY SO..?!

A lot of people just take the baby to a pediatrician after birth (ranges from same day to months after birth).  My pediatrician was not in the least worried about the fact that I UC'd my twins.  Just asked me what gestation they were born at, weights, etc. and checked them over. :)

 

Not even my OB said much at my post partum visit...just that it was "risky."  Lol.  I am seeing the same OB for this pregnancy as well.  One of the nurses excitedly asked me if I'll be delivering at home again, but other than that no one has said anything to me about how I'm going to birth this one.

 

If anyone scolds you for your birth choices, just kindly tell them to eff off.
