Just wanted to introduce myself, since I have been lurking for ages and finally decided to register so that I can post!

I'm Serena and I live in China with dh and 4 kids (11, 7, 5 and 2). My fourth baby was born UC, and we are probably going to try for #5 soon. If you are a member of birthlove you can read the story of my last baby's birth here.

Here's a few questions that are floating thru my head already:
So what's it like to UC the second time around? Anyone else live in a place where unattended birth is illegal? Or in a place where there are no emergency services... where you can't call 911 if something goes wrong?

UCing for a second time was interesting. I didn't have any of those initial "what ifs" to resolve, nobody to convince.....the whole pregnancy was very peaceful and matter-of-fact. Toward the end, though, I started getting uptight about emergencies.....which I finally figured out was due to the fact that our first UC was perfect. I felt like we had "used up" all of our good-birth luck, yk? So when an emergency situation would pop into my head to worry me, I'd look around for info on how to handle it, and send it to my DH to read as well. But I need not have worried - our second UC was just as perfect as the first
