Excited about home birth


Well... I found out I was pregnant TODAY! Lol.. this will be my 5th pregnancy, all hospital births, and I said my last pregnancy I wanted a hb but was told no by my consultant as I get high blood pressure, not super high, and never treated or hospitalised, all super straight forward births, with no pain relief, I know I got this! So Iím going for Home birth this time.

As well I was super anxious with my last hospital birth regarding childcare, we really struggled with the kids, and everybody was on edge, regarding my stay in hospital, and it would be most excellent to be at home.

Congrats!

I desperately want a home birth or birth center birth but had super high BP last time and itís already going up now! Frustrating as Iím active, eat great, am not overweight, etc. So annoying!!!

I hope you get your home birth!

Ahh I hope you get your home birth for your last baby!! I'm sorry you have health issues that might put that at risk. I will most likely get GD so I really need to manage it with diet, if I need insulin that will put me out of the home birth. We are most likely done too so I would really like my last one to be at home!!

Isn't it frustrating when our bodies don't behave??

The thing is I know I can do it, and I believe thatís half the battle, I want to birth at home so badly, but Iím trying not to focus on it too much at this early stage as I donít want it to totally consume my pregnancy.
