Hello! I have been reading the threads and still need some information. DH and I are planning on beginning the TTC process in about 18 months. I definitely want a homebirth with a midwife present and assisting. We live in TN so that is legal. Aside from all the benefits there is NO way I could successfully deliver in a hospital due to fear and anxiety with needles and interventions. I am worried about not being "low risk" though. I am 27 and have never been pregnant before. I have an underactive thyroid which is controlled through medication and PCOS so I do take a Glocophage to help keep hormones at the right levels. I have read many studies about glucophage being taken without problem during pregnancy and in fact helping to prevent miscarriage in women with PCOS. I am willing to see my PCP or an OB during pregnancy in addition to a midwife. I am worried a midwife won't accept me for homebirth due to these two things. I so believe that I need to have a homebirth that I don't think I want to be pregnant unless I can have a home birth (if there was an emergency during delivery or something occurred during pregnancy that mandated a C-section I would not oppose going to the hospital). Is this totally weird???? Would a midwife be totally inconvienced or find it weird to be interviewed prior to conception???? Does anyone have a TN midwife they would recommend???? I know The Farm has great midwives but I really want to be at home...Thanks for your knowledge!
