I am planning on giving birth at a birth center with midwives, but I recognize that emergencies do happen...
What sort of plan do you have in place for childcare if such a situation should arise?
In my case, DS has never spent the night away from DH and I. We do not have friends or family we trust enough to watch him over night, or really even during the day. Only my parents have babysat with him, and it has gotten to the point where we do not trust them anymore.
I've looked at some old threads on this and several people recommended having a student doula attend the birth for their own experience, but also to provide childcare.
Anyone think this is a good idea? Other options for finding childcare (I'm thinking someone to watch DS at the hospital if I needed a transfer)?
Yikes, this is really stressful.
