2) Breech, I have heard for a breech you basically do nothing right up til the end then you push with every ounce of power you've got to get the baby's head out. Has anyone here been through an UC breech, were you scared?
3) I live about 35 minutes from a hospital, and that's going 55-65 mph most of the way. There is a fire station up the street, but this is a very small town (1,010 pop.) and they're mostly volunteer, and I have no clue about ambulances,I know it's rare to transfer via emergency transport, but what if?
4) If my baby or I were hurt I would feel like such a jackass for not just having a midwife that might have prevented it all.. and if my baby were to die, which I KNOW IS SOOO RARE, I could never forgive myself.
