Fears? - Page 3

post #41 of 42
I was scared that our OB wouldn't be supportive of our natural birth plans, but everything seems to have worked out great so far.

As far as fears - stillbirth has to be at the top of list, next birth defects, and then a c-section. But the thing is, I can't control any of these really, so I choose not to dwell on them and focus on the things I can - my nutrition, hiring a doula, sharing my thoughts with my DH, trusting in God to help me handle whatever does come.

oh, i've been kept awake with fear these last few nights, fear, and pelvic pain. this is my first homebirth, as my previous pregnancies ended up with a premature delivery at 33 1/2 weeks, and a high risk pregnancy due to meningitis, so i'm not used to birthing without fear. i'm 35 weeks now, so i'm in the clear for a homebirth, but i still worry about needing a transfer and the hospital being unsympathetic to my needs (i had great hospital births with my other two, because i had a birth plan and was birthing in a really great, low-intervention, pro-mama/baby hospital) but i don't even know where i'd go if i needed a transfer. i'm also afraid of the pain, even though i've done it before, i'm nervous about making a mess of my house and embarrassing myself in front of my midwives, who are also friends. oh, all these issues!
