The more I read about unassisted childbirth (at unassistedchildbirth.com so far, but I'd like to learn more about the specifics), the more I am convinced I could do this myself.
Honestly, I only started to consider it because I am stressing out about paying a midwife. It's so expensive! And I honestly don't know why even a midwife should be necessary.. I am having a very healthy, easy, uncomplicated and risk-free pregnancy, and both my family as well as JB's family have histories of healthy babies and easy births.
I do want to find information about how to handle different situations, such as recognizing how much blood is too much or deal with emergency situations.. But I just have so much faith that this baby is going to come out of me exactly as he should, safe and sound.
I'm posting here to get support, to find out tips from other mothers who have had quite a few births or who also did an unassisted birth.. Just things I should be aware of or have on hand, and positive words of encouragement would be quite nice.
I would love a completely natural home birth that I only share with my husband, an intimate experience between us and our first child.
I would also love to avoid having a large bill from the midwife
