It was my first homebirth after having birthed 6 times (one a stillbirth) in the hospital with drugs and one epi. I found out that those drugs can have a LONG term effect on your system, so first homebirths can be slow.
Not THIS SLOW!
I spent two days in labour that kept stalling (cohosh all night, nip stim till I wanted no one to EVER touch them again, and finally castor oil/OJ cocktail). I completely stalled out. I hung out at 7cm for a week!
Yeah, the other area midwives have all heard about me now
I went into labour again the next week and finally had the baby (is it no wonder we named her Patience Jubilee?)
