I'm planning to UC. I used a midwife in a birthing center the last time and didn't feel as fulfilled as I will with a homebirth. I have my reason for wanting to UC, as everyone does, but I'm really excited about taking birth into my own hands.

My doctor here knows that I'm planning to UC, and I have a midwife lined up as well who knows of our plans. So we're good. :-) I'm excited. In all my dreams it's either just me, or me, Nathan, and Piper.

I know DH and I both have the training and skills to do this, but my last birth was horrible. I suspect it was horrible because of the interventions, not in spite of them, but I'm terribly apprehensive at this point.
but, that said, i really, really do not want labor and birth in the hospital. i called the only midwife in my area a few weeks ago, and she may not be practicing after the summer due to new regulations and a new provincial midwifery initiative that my area of Nova Scotia is choosing to be a part of. she may attend births as more of a labor support person, if which case i'd be having sort of a UC. i'm keeping my fingers crossed and trying to think positive thoughts that it will all work out and i can have the relaxing homebirth i've been dreaming of.
