southern CA?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hello,

 

I was wondering if there are any mama's here whop have had a UC birth in CA?  Did you have a doula attend the birth at all, or anyone else? What did you do after the baby was born? What did you do about prenatal care?  Are there any legal issues I need ot be concerned about?  Any info is helpful. Thanks.

I see your post was missed. I thought I'd bump it up to give it some attention and see if anyone has experiences to share. bump.gif

What part of Southern CA are you in?  I had a UC in San Diego, which is apparently wildly different from the rest of the state as to how they treat out-of-hospital births.  If you're outside of San Diego County, I'm pretty sure you just need to print the packet from the Capital's website.  If you're in San Diego, and you don't have "medical evidence" of the birth, ie a midwife, doctor, or paramedics, you'll have to file a petition with the courts to establish fact of birth.  Here's the link to my post detailing what I had to do to get the birth certificate.

I live in LA county. I have had two friends who have had UC in this area, not sure how they did it, but I do recall that on the birth certificate there is a place to write people that were present at the birth if a n OB or midwife was not present.

yeah, it should be pretty straightforward then. Like I said, you can google it for the form you'll need to send in. I was excited when I found it because it was so simple, but then I found out that san diego is ridiculous.
