Hi. I am due in early June with my 3rd baby. First was vag. hospital birth. 9lb6oz, 14.5" head, molding on the side/crown, so he was not coming out in the best way. Saying this to say that I have no worries about being able to give birth naturally. I know I was made to give birth. However, #2 I was induced (I've grown and changed alot in the last couple of years) and ended up with a c/s.
My main fears surrounding UC are that my dh will not be very supportive. He's super squeamish about anything and hates to see me hurting. So, he wouldn't have a problem driving me to the hospital if i so much as mentioned pain medicine or something.
I am seeing a mw now, but don't feel "right" with her.
Reasons I like the idea of UBAC:
I will not have to answer to anyone. There won't be anyone there to make me feel like I need to do things differently, or to make me feel embarrassed. I can listen to my own intuition about things.
Reasons I like the idea of a midwife assisted HBAC:
Someone there to check on me and notice first signs of rupture. Someone there will help my husband to feel more at ease.
Thing is, I'm not sure which way to go... I mean, with no one there I feel I will be able to listen to and trust my body more. With midwife there, I may end up putting my trust in her, and miss something from me.
K, I am sounding so wishy washy, and I'm really tired. I should have waited to post... but oh well. Any advice? input? thoughts?
