I'm new to this forum and I live in the New Haven county. I'm pregnant with my 4th child and
am very interested in experiencing a natural birth, but I would like to find a doula for extra support
and a birth center.
Unfortunately, I read some horror stories on line about the unsafeness of home births, not that I
would be comfortable going that route completely, but I am wondering if birthing centers are much safer?
If you have used one what was your experience?
Anyway, I would like to find an affordable doula, a Christian doula would be wonderful but isn't necessary
as long as it were someone who would be respectful of my beliefs.
Also, kind of off topic lol, but with my last pregnancies I was positive for GBS, would this rule
me out of using a birthing center? Would I be able to have a waterbirth and be treated should I
have a positive GBS result this time around?
Thanks for any input, recommendations, etc!
