Thank You, I'm  very exited, blissed out even.

My oldest DS is 14, hospital birth

 

My second DD is 9, planned birth center with  CNM but I put off going to until I was in transition. She was born in the car in the parking lot. I really just wanted to be at home. At the time midwives were not legally  allowed to attend a homebirth.

 

My third DD is 7, planned UC, everything went beautifully, except I did tear and went to hospital for stitches, as homebirth was still illegal, this way I could make it look like an accident.  They stitched me up and let me go.

 

My fourth DD is 4, I had two midwives, mostly because I was living with one, a good friend, and she was still fairly new so her friend came and helped.  I have mixed feelings about it.  It wasn't planned out real well but I'm happy with the birth because I was able to stay at home for stitches AGAIN.  She was born in the caul and  it was very magical. 

 

I'm planning a UC with this one and want to have a midwife come stitch me afterward.  My friend and neighbor is a midwife so I'm going to ask her later on. I do not plan on getting prenatal care but I might just get some because I know so many midwives.

 

BTW, I believe all the tearing is a result from being cut the first time.

 

I'm also a Doula.
