1. Your age at the time of the birth
28
2. Date of the birth
March 13, 2008
3. Sex of the baby
Female
4. Weight of the baby
7lb 9oz
5. Number of weeks gestation at time of birth
39 (she was born 5 days before the 40th week)
6. Did you receive any "professional" prenatal care from a doctor or
midwife? If you did, how many visits did you have?
I did my own prenatal care AND also had free services from a midwife. They did no internal exams and used no ultrasound or doppler. I was too poor to purchase equipment, so I used their services for charting my weight, taking blood pressure, and checking fetal heart tones with a fetoscope as well as taking advantage of the free massage!
7. Would you be considered low, medium, or high risk by a physician,
and why?
My midwives were concerned about a small amount of sugar I was spilling in my urine, so a physician probably would have labeled me medium risk at best. I simply cut out sugar from my diet.
8. Did you experienceany complications during your birth? If so,
what?
It depends on what you'd consider a "complication." I had a small amount of hemorrhage which I cured by biting the placenta. Baby was born with cord around neck and I simply unwrapped her. She also had meconium in her waters which caused us no trouble.
9. Did you transport to the hospital?
no
10. Did the baby see a doctor after birth? If so, why?
In our state, pediatricians will not take on a new baby after 2 weeks of age, so I did take her for a quick well-baby visit at 2 weeks old. He just looked at her, declared her healthy and we went home.
11. Is this your first unassisted birth? Was it planned or unplanned?
This is my first unassisted birth. I have been planning it for 8 years.
12. Please break your births down into categories:

1 # unassisted
0 # assisted hospital birth
0 # assisted homebirth
0 # assisted birth center birth


13. Did you have insurance at the time of your birth that would have
covered your birth?
Yes. I have full-coverage medicare.

Okay, so here's the stats on my latest UC. I replied earlier with my previous UC.

1. Your age at the time of the birth
26
2. Date of the birth
July 27, 2008
3. Sex of the baby
Female
4. Weight of the baby
10 pounds, 3 ounces
5. Number of weeks gestation at time of birth
41 weeks
6. Did you receive any "professional" prenatal care from a doctor or
midwife? If you did, how many visits did you have?

Minimal. 3 visits in early pregnancy.
7. Would you b econsidered low, medium, or high risk by a physician,
and why?

My good health would have put me at low risk. However, after the birth we discovered that our daughter was 10 pounds and 3 ounces. That probably would have been considered higher risk by physicians. I may have had blood sugar issues (gestational diabetes), but I am not diabetic outside of pregnancy.
8. Did you experienceany complications during your birth? If so,
what?

Yes, shoulder dystocia.
9. Did you transport to the hospital?
No.
10. Did the baby see a doctor after birth? If so, why?
Yes (at the age of 3 1/2 weeks). General checkup for our insurance.
11. Is this your first unassisted birth? Was it planned or unplanned?
It was my second UC. It was planned.
12. Please break your births down into categories:

# unassisted--2
# assisted hospital birth--1
# assisted homebirth
# assisted birth center birth


13. Did you have insurance at the time of your birth that would have
covered your birth?

Hospital birth, yes. Birth center or home birth, I don't know.
