I am planning a no intervention, hospital birth. I feel pretty confident with my care providers and very confident in my dh's ability to stand up for my wishes. But. . . I have been having very vivid dreams of delivering this baby at home, probably in my shower. It is possible that this could happen, my births went from 28 hrs, to 12 hrs to 4 hrs. So by the time I am sure that "this is it", I may be too far along to make the 20 min. drive to the hospital. I usually go from 6 cm to holding my baby in less than 40 minutes. Anyway, I have done my homework, I am confident that we would be fine having this baby UC, but because I have a normal hospital care provider, would I have to go in to the hospital? Is there any good reason for this? I do plan on talking to my doc about this at my next visit, but I would also love to hear from anyone who has experience this, or read any birth stories about this kind of situation. The one thing I am sure of, is that unless something feels wrong, I would not call 911. I don't think all that drama is necessary around a health natural birth.
Thanks for any input
