So, bumping this thread up to see how all the home birth plans are coming. I've started to have some anxiety about risking out for various reasons. None of them have materialized and all is well. I think I just got used to some over management from my hospital cnms last time so I'm feeling a bit adrift now? How is everyone else doing?
OHHHH thank you for bringing this up and sharing this! It is exactly how I feel. I am doing concurrent care with OBs and even they are beening more hands off this time!!! But I keep fearing something will keep it from being a reality. Last night in our childbirth class the facilitator (homebirth midwife) reminded us of the exercise in Birthing Within of the Worry Chart. Basically you make a list of all your worries and write what you could do about them, if anything. Or how you would handle that variation. Then we decided we would do a burning ritual for it!
We are still planning a HB. Getting things prepared as we can. This is our first HB, DD was born in the hospital something like 4-6 weeks early. I had PROM. My goal has been to gestate to 37 weeks (buy my script is "I want this baby to stay in until May 20th the earliest but May 24 would be a lovely day to have a baby.")
