This has been on my mind for months now.
: Sorry mods if this isn’t in the right spot.
I really want to have HB (second choice birthing center) for my next pregnancy. I've been reading books about pregnancy after loss and they all seem to stress invasive tests, multiple ultrasounds and OB run hospital births.
I personally will want at least 1 ultrasound and some
non-invasive tests (thyroid, etc), but I don’t want the whole medical lineup of ultrasounds at every appointment, highly invasive tests, scheduled inductions and c-sections and I want a homebirth.
My reason for the stillbirth (at 30 weeks) is totally unknown. It wasn’t something that happened at delivery either - his heart stopped and I found out via ultrasound.
Would a midwife refuse pre-natal care/homebirth if the woman had a past stillbirth whether or not the reason is known? Does anyone have or know of any positive and negative experiences?
I’m not pregnant yet so I don’t really feel its appropriate to call up HB MW and ask them.
