Pouting- no homebirth...

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

This is not a new revelation, I risked out of homebirth after my 3rd child (I had #1 and #3 at home).  I had hemorrhaged with all 3, but the 3rd was severe.  I had my 4th in a hospital, and it was a wonderful birth where I was left alone, and my baby was left alone, and all was well.  But, one of my best friends is due just a couple of weeks before me, and she will be having her 5th homebirth (I got to catch the last one thumbsup.gif).  I really wish I could have another homebirth.  Part of it is nervousness that I am in a new area, with a new midwife I don't really know yet, and I haven't been part of the birth community (and haven't doula'd at all here) long enough to know for sure about this hospital.  I only know that I've been told by several that it's the only hospital to go around here if you want any kind of say in how your birth goes.

I'm sorry you don't get to do your homebirth, and being in a new area is so scary. Can you tour the hospital and ask questions about how they will treat you? I do find it encouraging that people say its a good hospital though. Hopefully you get to have the birth go as close to what you want as possible.

I am going to try to tour the hospital soon.  Most people don't do so to closer to their due date, but I need some reassurance, so I'm going to try to in to in the next couple of months.  Then I'll tour it again with my husband later.
