Hi ladies! I am hoping to get some advice on a homebirth plan for those on blood thinners.
I am 9.5 weeks pregnant after 1 round of IVF, 2 FETs and 2 years total TTC. Naturally through infertility I had every test under the sun and they turned up a slightly elevated level of lipoprotein (a). As a result I was put on daily Lovenox shots from the first day of the transfer. Now I have interviewed 5 homebirth midwives (out of 16 in my area) and the 2 that I liked the best, who seemed the most educated and responsible, were both very cautious to negative about doing a homebirth while I'm on Lovenox.
They both referred me to a homebirth friendly perinatologist for a second opinion. I am hoping that he says I don't need to be on it, but short of that, do you have any ideas for a homebirth plan that would reduce the potential risks, or about what to say to the midwives to convince them to work with me? I am happy to consult with an outside doctor and to have a backup plan, but at least trying for a homebirth is very important to me.
