My midwife had mentioned that I probably won't give birth without someone assisting me unless I'm comfortable with the being unassisted. I'd like to be that comfortable rather than wait for assistance to arrive. See I had a fast labor prevoiusly and we were talking about what to do if this one is too fast for her to arrive. I want to know what I can do to get myself ready in case this is an unassisted birth. How do I gain the confidence that I can do it?

Mama to 9 so far:Mother of Joey (20), Dominick (13), Abigail (11), Angelo (8), Mylee (6), Delainey (3), Colton (2) and Baby 8 and Baby 9 coming sometime in July 2013. If evolution were true, mothers would have three arms!
I surrendered to my body's ability wholeheartedly. And that was no easy task! I also told myself if I wanted to birth the way I wanted, I needed to limit my choices by understanding the risks of hospital/MW attended births. Knowing the truth about homebirth and the real damage that will happen in a hopsital only solidified my decision in staying home with DH.
I was scared, only because of the unknown. Doesn't everyone feel that way once in a while? You make a choice- run from the fear or learn from it by facing it head on with as much knowledge as you feel comfortable.
just my 2 cents.
All my best!
