I am planning on a homebirth. I met with my midwives yesterday after doing a 12 hour fasting and 2 hour post prandial blood sugar test a few weeks ago. My post prandial #'s were lower than my fasting, indicating that I had hypoglycemia.
Last night, at my appointment, after discussing changes I've made in my diet given this new information (I'm still a work in progress), one of my midwives said that w/ my blood sugar #'s as they are right now (fasting 97, pp 85) I wasn't a good candidate for an out of hospital birth. I was a little too stunned to ask much last night. The rest of the appointment went by typically and no other mention was made about me not having a home birth. I emailed one of the midwives this morning and I'm just waiting to hear back.
I was wondering if anyone could share some insight into how the hypoglycemia effects the safety of birthing at home. Thank you!!!!
