We’re planning to get pregnant sometime this year and have discussed our options. After a horrific hospital birthing experience I vowed my next will be a homebirth. We have some unanswered questions we do not seem to find the answers for so perhaps someone here can help us out.
I have a regular OB/Gyn that I see for my yearly pap and who delivered my first son. Do I go to him for my prenatal visits and then just not go to the hospital for my labor? How does this situation work? When you opt for a homebirth are you opting out of an ultrasound? I know the midwife I plan to use for the birth does not have that type of technology because she is a certified midwife that does not have or work for a private organization. If someone could just explain to me where and how you do your prenatal visits, check-ups etc but still deliver at home, I would be greatly appreciative.
