I have exactly one fear.
Perineal tearing. This is dangerous for me. I don't have a normal intestinal system, and I have a j-pouch instead of a large intestine. So tearing through would mean my artificial, surgically-created j-pouch would tear, and it can't be repaired.
And yet I'm planning a natural birth, and no, not in a hospital.
A hospital transfer - for any reason.
With two natural out of hospital births under my belt, I know it is very unlikely... the thought of giving birth in a hospital is absolutely terrifying to me. I don't know where my children would go, what my family would do without me for 2-3 days... and the thought of all those people that I've never met before in my life having a hand in something so private... I just have to put my head in the sand on that one and not think about it, because it would become a huge mental block.
