I've only ever given birth unassisted. Deep inside I knew it was what was best for me& my babies. My first was solo so I was actually a little anxious with #2 having my husband present.
But this time I've felt this nagging from very early on and I finally concluded that my intuition is telling me I *need* to birth in the hospital. I feel kind of sad about changing my plans, but also feel relief & a lot less anxious about it now that I've recognized that this is the best course of action... Even though I have no clue why yet.
I'm very interested in hearing experiences of others who intuitively knew they needed to birth in the hospital (especially after having beautiful UC experiences that you'd gladly repeat!)
