I just got finished emailing a prospective midwife. I don't know if I'll tell her or not that I'm thinking about unassisted. I am really not into debating, or defending my choice....if that's what I choose, an unassisted birth that is. I just want to meet with a couple of midwives to see if they 'click', and I'll take that into all my consideration.
We just moved to a new town 6 months ago, and don't know anyone...and I guess that's my biggest hurdle. I know we will need help.....setting things up, breaking them down, help with the kids, etc. I am pretty comfortable about getting along with the birth itself, it's just all the little things I don't want my husband to be overwhelmed with.
I'd love to have a doula to just generally help with it all, someone who understands the homebirth atmosphere....but, it seems most are worried about liability in an unassisted birth, and tend to disagree with it in general. I don't know.....I'm hoping to find a solution, even if it's just in my head some time soon, for peace of mind.
