Hi there, I just joined the mothering group, this is my 32nd week with my second pregnancy. First one, I had in the hospital with two CNMs. It was a pretty good experience, considering. But this time I want it even better, be more in control and am planning on a homebirth. My mom has had 4 out of us 5 kids at home, two unintentially UC! So I feel comfortable with her as my attendent. I have been seeing Dr at the OB clinic nearby and have taken all the required tests. She says I am in great health, and not high risk at all. I have had a lot of braxton hicks already, and baby is moving around a lot, head down. I am planning on the birth at my mom's house, which is 40 minutes from the closest hospital. That is DH's greatest and only concern, in case of postpartum hemorrhaging. He also doesn't want to get his nursing license taken away, if there's any chance of that.
So, I was wondering first off, what are the chances of bleeding, and has anyone used Shepherd's Purse?
Is there anything I can do/say to help change his mind? A homebirth is very important to me
Should I look up local midwives/doulas to assist along with my mom and husband, or is it too late in the pregnancy for that? And how much do they normally charge?
Anything else I should think about or advice? Anything is appreciated! TIA
