Unassisted or homebirth in a hotel? I'm confused - Page 2

post #21 of 22

I am so sorry OP for the horrible experience you had.  I would suggest getting a doula to support you in your upcoming birth no matter where you end up.  I don't know where you are from- but my midwife comes 3 hours to get to me- maybe you could expand the radius you are looking at?  I know some moms who have driven a couple of hours to get to a hotel for their "home birth"  and they have had no problem.  I would probably try to kill my poor dh if we had to do that.  I would also suggest having a very specific birth plan in any case ready to go and discussed with everyone who might possibly be there.  Your second labor may or may not be anything like your first of course- so I would be hesitant to book a cabin or something so expensive unless you are willing and wanting to have a little vacation there regardless.  I would have plenty of good nourishment ready as well so you don't end up weak and tired this time around.  Pain is much much worse when you are weak.  Grape juice, broth, easy to digest foods would be your friends :)

 

btw- this is my 6th.  I don't feel comfortable with a planned UC at all for me.  I need some direction :)  Now if something happens and it becomes a UC- I think we will be good- but planning on it is totally freaky to me.  I get it.
