are you wanting home birth, birthing center, or hospital birth?
I'd love more that anything to have a home birth, I would like to be comfortable, and be able to have who I please with me, and be in my own home. But I am also scared to death of something going wrong and needing an emergency c-section. I was so set on wanting a home birth one day, and my husband wants what ever makes me comfortable and happy, so he's is A o.k. with a home birth, but my mothr is totally against it, and saying if something was to go wrong I could die, or my baby could.
What are your ladies wants/opinions on the subject?
Hmmm...some of those natural birthing centers might be better. They are relaxed like you are at home, but watch you closely and can get you somewhere quickly if you are in distress. I will always have my babies in the hospital. I'm a coward. tee hee.
My second son was supose to be a in out 24 hour healthy baby just like my first. We got to the hospital, I had him and he was really really sick! He ended up having Down Syndrome and with low tone and such he struggled to breath, keep his temp up, feeding, you name it! He was a very sick little boy. SO for that reason I would not chance it. You just never know. The OBGYN had no clue that he had DS and my chances were 1/1200.
Its a personal choice, I never thought I would have a baby with something wrong. BUT I know in my heart if he had been a home birth, he would not have made it.
BUT, I was also at a really great hospital, beautiful rooms and super nice staff. That makes a big differance!
That is what im so worried about when the time comes, I'd much rather have my baby healthy, and have the things he/she needs if something was togo wrong, than for me to be comfortable. But i bet it would be such an amazing experience!
I had HELLP syndrome. And didn't discover it till I was being induced. And I got very sick and had to have a blood transfusion and had to be put on magnesium sulphate because my blood pressure was super high and my kidneys and liver were always running VERY high. They were scared I would have seizures. And my daughter had her umbilcal cord wrapped around her neck and a subgael hemmorage to her head. If we wern't in a hospital theres a chance I wouldn't be here! You really never know what can happen. And even tho we have all the modern day technology, having a baby is till very dangerous.
I am also a wimp and having my second baby in hospital. My first birth was a bit difficult (sorry don't want to scare you), and my son went into fetal distress and had to get out asap. Because of his birth he had to be checked over by 3 different peadiatricians to make sure he was ok.
I'm thinking this time of trying a water birth at the hospital. The rooms look really nice and relaxing but I'm still in the hospital if anything should go wrong :-)
I would say hosiptal too, but mostly because you can concentrate on baby and not worry about having to clean up (very lazy I know!) I think also I would actually be more relaxed in a place where I know there are experts and machines at the ready incase they are needed.
Having said that my friend had a planned home water birth and it all went well and she was very happy with that decesion. Only you can make the call in the end, and you never know once we get that magical BFP we might feel different
