We are going to do a homebirth (mw to be detemined...), but we have decided to do dual care for a couple of medical related pregnancy reasons. I am confident in a hbmw's abilities, but I do need to be followed a bit for a few reasons.
I am just wondering how/when I should bring up our homebirth plans with my CNM who I love, respect, and am a bit saddened that she will not be there to assist with this birth. But, we do not want another hospital birth, and she cannot attend in this state. We did have an amazing experience with her for DS birth, and its nothing against her, just location wise.
I am hoping she will respect our wishes and continue our care, and be our back up...but, Im not assuming anything. I don't want to lie to her and then just birth at home and ruin our relationship.
