well im new on here so hey everyone
im 26 + 5 n expecting a little girl on the 3rd marchh
sooo iv beeen thinking about the birth recently and this might sound completely mad lol, but iv been thinking about doing it on my own... im not with FOB and i was planning on having my mum with me when i go into labour.
but i dont want my mum seeing anything down there lol and the more i think about it the more embarrassed i would feel about her accidently catching a glimpse of something lol!!
i just thought i would postt it on here too see if anyone else felt the same way before or if im just completelyy mad !
im giving birth alone cause i have to (the rules in the hospital here) tbh i hate the idea of it and wish so much that i did not have to do it by myself. The thing that scares me most about giving birth is being by myself when i do it so if i had the chance to have someone there i would def take it!
My husband travels for business alot so we are hoping I go into labour while he is home or close to home. If he is away I plan to give birth alone. I have two wonderful MW's that are a great support. My father lives close by so he is going to be my driver but he will wait "outside"..lol.
i really wouldnt worry abut your mum seeing anything down there as she wont get an eyeful of 'bits' unless she actually stands at the bottome of the bed bedise whoever is delivering the baby - most birthing partners stay up top with the lady in labour and only look if asked/offered when head is crowning etc
on the other hand i had leah on my own coz i got mightly pissed off with people coming in and out of the room and told them to leave the fucking door shut - unfortunately my birth partner was at the other sdie of it lol
how will your mum feel about you not having her there?
you will be fine if you decide to give birth alone - partners arent actually that useful during the late stage sof labour anyway as your body is very engrossed in what it is doing
having attended a birth and had babies, i wld say there is no way the person with you is NOT going to see anything. If you dont want someone to see anything you cant have them there. Its just not possible and its human nature that a strak naked woman screaming and pushing, youre gonna look down the bed, even if not on purpose, and accidentally see something .
