A lot of people just take the baby to a pediatrician after birth (ranges from same day to months after birth).  My pediatrician was not in the least worried about the fact that I UC'd my twins.  Just asked me what gestation they were born at, weights, etc. and checked them over. :)

 

Not even my OB said much at my post partum visit...just that it was "risky."  Lol.  I am seeing the same OB for this pregnancy as well.  One of the nurses excitedly asked me if I'll be delivering at home again, but other than that no one has said anything to me about how I'm going to birth this one.

 

If anyone scolds you for your birth choices, just kindly tell them to eff off.

Would it be possible to have a friend or family member be there for the birth instead?
