I rented a cabin in the town 2 hours away but I don't take possession until 2 days after my due date. If I go into labour before then I plan on UCing at home. For some reason the idea of UC before we take possession if the cabin doesn't bother me. It's only when I know I could have a mw that I get uncomfortable.

You are all so inspirational. It's so nice to hear from the women who UC and it all turns out great, which seems to be the case the vast majority of the time, as opposed to the one offs that go bad and get dragged through public hell in order to scare women into believing that hospitals are necessary.

This gratitude of course extends to women who plan to UC but for whatever reason have to transfer.

It's all just so awsome.

Thank you!

UC...I couldn't imagine it any other way.  I'm always surprised when people have asked me for my consecutive pregnancies, "So are you having this one at home, too?"  Why wouldn't I, after the totally wonderful, peaceful, healthy labors and births we've experienced?

 

People always say I "got lucky" or wish me luck...I don't think it's about luck...how could I get so lucky as to never have anything go wrong with any of them...even twins?  I'd say I'm defying the odds...which is why I don't think birth complications are luck. =P

Ya, if only insurance covered hb midwives...I couldn't afford that either! I didn't want one anyway but really is awful that insurance doesn't give that option...

It really is awful that this service isn't free. How can people rant and rave about save the babies and ignore the implications of a 5 or 10 or 15 k hospital bill. It's insane
