Hi Mamas! I figured FYT was the best place to post this since it would have the best chance at getting FLA Mamas attention more definately than anywhere else.<br><br>
I was approached today reguarding helping someone with information on unassisted homebirthing in Florida. I am supposed to be getting in touch with a mom there who has had 3 children via hospital birth of which at least one was a c-section. She wants to have a UC with her husband but is new to the state and doesn't know anything about the laws and has no connections to people.<br><br>
I am going to find out exactly where she is and try to find her some sort of HB support group or AP group possibly through MDC.<br><br>
I will probably have a few questions through the process for you all since I've never lived in that state so if you could check back every now and then I'd really appreciate it! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
My question for now is, has anyone had a UC in FL? Can you lend me any insight as to the climate there reguarding uc as far as legal matters etc...<br><br>
Thanks so much!

I Think It Is Illegal, But I Know Some Mormons Mommas In My Area Uc.<br>
I Don't Know How You Would Approch Them, Unless You Were Friends First.<br><br>
Good Luck.

I'm pretty darn sure it's not illegal. I do believe that even in states where homebirth w/ a midwife, etc is illegal, you can still legally have your baby at home by yourself.<br><br>
I just moved from FL 4 mos ago, had all my kids there, but I don't know too much about UC there. I had a planned HB w/ a midwife, which BTW is very legal. My midwife handled all the paperwork, so I wouldn't know where to begin w/ that.<br><br>
Good luck helping your friend.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>

Holy toledo! I hope it's not illegal!<br><br>
Than you for all of the insight so far...every little bit counts with amtters like this. I'm hoping to get the attention of at least one mama on mdc who has hb via uc. There's gotta be one! Well I suppose if it were illegal no one would be jumping up and down to volunteer their story but I'm hoping it's not.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

I should not say it is illegal. I am assuming (never a good thing) because even when I had my kidos at home with a midwife the moms I knew that were UC' ing were keeping it hush hush.......KWIM?

IT'S NOT ILLEGAL TO HAVE A UC IN FLORIDA. WE DID IT AND NO ONE BATTED AN EYE. WE SUBMITTED A BIRTH CERTIFICATE ETC AND ALL WAS FINE. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

Thanks for a confirming post! That's what I was hoping for...to get the attention of an actual FL mama who has done it and knows the deal <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
