this will be our 3rd planned UC. Im just curious as to other mamas planning on following this path...
Any other Ucers here?
Sort-of. I have a midwifery background and most of my closest friends are doulas or midwives. So I'm doing all of my own prenatal care and my support people at my birth will be 2-3 midwife/doula friends. So they will be there in "friend" capacity but if shit hits the fan they have the know-how, skills and resources to handle whatever may arise. So...quasi UC (well, technically UBAC)
sounds cool. we are interviewing two midwives later-ish. IDK since we have had 2 UC's already that's where my heart is. I love the aspect of UC being that its just me and the hubs... I have previously given birth to my babes at night while everyone is sleeping . So its just him and me. Its good you have others to surround you. Personally I am a private birther and cant stand others in my "area" ;)
Do you UP as well or just UC? Have you had mw's before or is there a reason you'll be interviewing them later?
UC is unassisted childbirth. not relying on anyone for assistance in labor/delivery. No one will attend the birth except myself and hubby. there are lots of descriptions for UC, but to us ( hubs and me) unassisted means just that. no medical "professionals"
