To the Ladies who are having hospital births. What do you plan on opting out of, if anything? Why?
To ladies who are doing home births: what would you opt out of/are glad isn't going to be a part of your birth experience?
I feel so confused. Like I'm confident in my decisions and then my MWs give me a bunch of stuff about how I should do xyz and I'm back to be like "well, maybe I should..."
I was pretty set on not wanting vit. K shot, eye antibiotics. For some reason I didn't want PKU testing but for the life of me I can't remember why I came to that decision =/ I will have to look it up again. Now I'm on the fence about the whole thing because MW gave DH a pamplet about all the scary things that can happen without getting these.
But I really feel like if babies were "supposed" to have Vit. K it would be in their system... or breast milk. There has to be some reason for it. It kind of reminds me of the apendix where they used to say that there is no function for it in the body but now they are finding out that it serves a bunch of functions.
I KNOW I'm not doing HIB. Screw that.
I can't remember what else they do...
