post #43 of 43
Okay, so here's the stats on my latest UC. I replied earlier with my previous UC.

1. Your age at the time of the birth
26
2. Date of the birth
July 27, 2008
3. Sex of the baby
Female
4. Weight of the baby
10 pounds, 3 ounces
5. Number of weeks gestation at time of birth
41 weeks
6. Did you receive any "professional" prenatal care from a doctor or
midwife? If you did, how many visits did you have?

Minimal. 3 visits in early pregnancy.
7. Would you b econsidered low, medium, or high risk by a physician,
and why?

My good health would have put me at low risk. However, after the birth we discovered that our daughter was 10 pounds and 3 ounces. That probably would have been considered higher risk by physicians. I may have had blood sugar issues (gestational diabetes), but I am not diabetic outside of pregnancy.
8. Did you experienceany complications during your birth? If so,
what?

Yes, shoulder dystocia.
9. Did you transport to the hospital?
No.
10. Did the baby see a doctor after birth? If so, why?
Yes (at the age of 3 1/2 weeks). General checkup for our insurance.
11. Is this your first unassisted birth? Was it planned or unplanned?
It was my second UC. It was planned.
12. Please break your births down into categories:

# unassisted--2
# assisted hospital birth--1
# assisted homebirth
# assisted birth center birth


13. Did you have insurance at the time of your birth that would have
covered your birth?

Hospital birth, yes. Birth center or home birth, I don't know.
