I have employed a midwife to come to my home when I am laboring so that we go to the hospital as late as possible. She will do almost constant monitoring, we will be well aware of red flags etc. I had a very bad hosptial birth with my last baby and want to be at home for as long as its reasonable.

On the other hand, I have to be realistic. I have had multiple c/s's and all my placentas have always been over my incision site. My vaginal births have had very fast pushing phases. I trust my body to birth, but I dont trust my incision not to split open and have me and my baby dead before we are at the end of the road.

Mama to nine gorgeous babies, with finale #10 due April'14.
