At your birth? A home birth im talking about.
No its not.....BUT and im gonna be totally honest with you.....you would have a screw lose if you chose not to.
Both mine the babies had to be rubbed up and the cord taken form round the neck..if you are not alert and ready for every eventuality then its a VERY dangerous decision to make.
For the safety of mother and baby I would agree with HB, although ultimately it is your choice, but a midwife is trained to spot possible complications before they happen.
Just checking out my options really,the midwife told me there are only a couple of midwifes trained to to do water births and more than likely i wont get one and they will ask me to go in seems so unfair.
I've heard of some people hiring their own midwife. Is that an option?
Yes i know what you are saying and i know you cant predict what will happen however this is number 6 and they do come very quickly,i dont feel scared but i do know its best to have someone there.
There are only a couple of on call midwives in each area full stop never mind trained for water birth. Why not just rest in the water through contractions and come out for the pushing?
I have never had a water birth so i wouldnt know the difference but i would rather give birth at home anyday than go in hospital.
I was told that i had to go in hospital when i rang them because they had no one to assist me..i told them i would labour at home and did until the shift change and the new mw's came in.
hmm hadnt thought of that good idea,are they called duelers (sp) or something or is that a different thing?
So was the mw there on time or was it too late?
No hun they are called private midwives a doula has no medical training what so ever.
I wouldn't risk not having a midwife - is a birthing pool birth much different from the MW's point of view?
She broke the speed limit to get here because he was my 3rd lol she examined me and i was 9.5 helped me into position and POP there you go lol
Ah right yes i may look into this for sure..anyone know how much you would expect to pay?
Independent Midwives UK
Have a read through the link and see if they can help
Apparently so delca
You can hire a private midwife but I hate to think what it would cost
Doulas are ladies who act as birth companions but aren't trained midwives.
I delivered one of my grand-daughters because the midwife didn't arrive in time
I have no idea tbh its not something i have ever looked into.
Whats the difference between a pool and a bath? the midwives always tell you to hop in the bath sooo i cant imagine there is special training needed to watch a woman in labour in a pool until the point of pushing.
Ooh that was close id love it to happen like that for me the midwife to be there only for the last part.
Thankyou lav i will look through that and ill talk to my midwife about my plans too.
They told me they would rather me have the baby in hospital as its number 6 but i really dont want to and i feel confident enough to birth at home.
She did mention why but i cant remember what she said now but there is defo a difference in water midwife and normal.
