If there is, can someone point me in that direction?

If not, can we start one?

I'm in the process of getting tested for Factor V Leiden & if I'm positive for it, I'll probably end up with a hospital birth. I really need some support. I was born at home, and I've been planning to give birth at home as long as I can remember. My midwife doesn't think FVL is an absolute risk-out, but I'll probably need treatment to prevent another miscarriage, and the treatment will probably risk me out of a home birth.

I think it might help me figure out how to cope with this, emotionally, to talk to other women who have been risked out of a home birth before labor.

I don't know if there is a thread already going, but you are welcome to start one. Birth and Beyond would be a good place for that.
