Homebirthing roll call.

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 

This is baby #5 and it will be my first homebirth, I am so excited. After my last 2  births being intervention free at the hospital with great Midwives and leaving just 2 hours after each birth I finally got my hubby on board.

 

Funny story, at my first midwife meeting she had me pee in a cup and I didnt realize how full it was when I pulled it through my legs over my jeans and spilled it all over my undies and pants. That was a first! lol.

We're having a mid March home birth! I love our midwife and my hubby was a most excellent birth pardner w our first whom we birthed in a birthing center. Super stoked!

My first homebirth was my 5th too!! Unfortunately we aren't this time because of risking out. I'm really upset about it, but it is what it is. Hope you have an amazing one!

We're preparing for our 5th baby, 4th homebirth, 3rd UC. homebirth.jpguc.jpg

 

We live in a house we bought a year and a half ago- our first real house- and we're so excited to be welcoming a baby here.

We're planning a home birth. 
My last was a planned C-section due to breech. My current midwife will deliver (the safe) breech babies, so that's one less worry!

Beckily:

I've had two c/s and I had a window on my uterus last time (i.e. I would have been the 1 in 100 who had a uterine rupture), but now I'm told it could be repaired from the last c/s and I may be fine with a VBAC. I'm not sure it's worth the risk though. I sort of feel I'd be doing something I want (finally have a natural birth) and maybe not what's safest for baby. Ahhh... decisions. What made you decide on a HBAC?

 

I'm so excited to hear about the planned home births. :)

That's a scary thought! Can they check to see if it's healed or do you get to gamble? 

I wanted a home birth last time. We just transferred care because they didn't do breech births, so there wasn't anything wrong with me and I've healed well.
I don't like the hospital. It's loud and bright and I hate needles SO much. If I need to transfer, I can make it work, but I really like the idea of a peaceful time after birth without people waking me up every two hours to check on me. And without that nerve wracking first drive with the newborn.

Plus, my two year old is really just never away from us. We need to start working on that so he can go a few hours, but the thought of him with someone else while we're at the hospital is stressful. And, with a low risk, c-sections are riskier than a VBAC. And, with a low risk, home births are safer than hospital births.

This will (hopefully) be home birth #2 for us as well!

We are moving towards a uc this time around, the closer i get to having this baby. the more freaked out i am by my horrible hospital birth situation. lol

 

I am feeling really good and positive about this positibility for the first time since i found out that mw's wouldn't take me because of my asthma

Second baby and hoping for second homebirth.  I'm also looking into UC.  I LOVE my midwife but canceled my appt before Thanksgiving and haven't called her back to re-schedule.  I just feel more comfortable doing it myself w/ just my family.  I would love to talk to the other UC'ers. :)

We are also planning a home birth.  This is my 3rd birth.  I've always planned to give birth at home, but the last one came early (35 wks) so we decided to deliver in the hospital.  We are really hoping to make it to 37 wks this time around so we can stay at home!!!

First baby :) We hope to have him at home and are doing our best to see that everything stays healthy and right for him to emerge here.  I have a great midwife and partner and we are so happy to have this opportunity. 

 

Due March 1st! He's a pretty big and active guy, so we'll see if he makes it till then ;)

Just called the midwife! My dh wasn't completely comfortable with home birth and I was trying to respect that. He said it was whatever I wanted but I wanted us both to feel safe. I had a home birth 13 years ago (different dad) and was very happy with it. Yesterday we went on the hospital tour and dh was less comfortable with a hospital birth, and I was more convinced than ever I wanted a home birth. It was a great hospital and if we have to go it will be fine. I called my midwife from my ds and she said great!! I saw her when I first first pregnant, 28 weeks ago, so I don't think she was entirely surprised by my call.

We hope to welcome our first baby at home. Seems that I have an awesome birth team. My midwife was my doula's midwife so I am glad they know and like each other. The doula had a babe who faced sunny side up, which may happen with me. The doula was also our birth class instructor, so I am happy that she will be a familiar person. The midwife and doula are friends with the chiropractor, who said he'll come and help out for free, even in the middle of the night, if he is needed. And the midwife's assistant is a real nice lady, I think her "go with the wave/energy" attitude will be a real help. I have complete confidence that my fiance will be my most perfect birth partner, and am really looking forward welcoming our babe into a peaceful, loving home.
