Has anyone done a partial unassisted pregnancy, saw a midwife for some appointments and had a midwife there for the birth? We're moving 5 hours away from my midwife and she said she'd come to us for the birth. I can make some appointments back at her house but towards the end of my pregnancy theres no way I could make the drive once a week. I was thinking I could do my own prenatal care for half the time, keep a record and see her the other half. Make sense?
We've thrown around the idea of a UC, but I'm just not comfortable with it. And now that my midwife has offered this awesome service it just feels right to me. I would obviously talk to her about this at my next appointment, and I know she thinks UC's are awesome so I have a feeling this would be okay with her.
I guess I'm just kind of dipping my toes in the water here, and wanted to post and maybe get some help with practical things like dopplers, urine dip sticks, ect.
This is baby #4, pregnancy #5. First one was an early mc, I have a 5 yo, 3 yo, 18 mo and am 23ish weeks. My pregnancies have all been pretty easy, my first was induced at 37 weeks due to pre e, which was very minor. Second was induced due to me being 42 weeks and OB not "letting" me go any further. 3rd I used this midwife and at 41.5 weeks baby was found, by ultrasound, to be IUGR so to avoid a hospital induction I used castor oil and some herbs to get labor going. We ended up transfering due to heartrate issues but baby was great, just small for me 6.15.
