Hello lovely ladies, been to hospital to see specialist today as i want a home birth but as i have a bmi of 40 they recomend against it. The whole morning was a complete trauma that had me in tears when i got home. They said certain risks were increased due to my high bmi but the risks were very rare but the specialist kept repeating i should go to hospial. After my experience today i never want to set foot in a hospital again. Are there any overweight ladies who have had succesful home births or does anyone no where i could get info on this as the specialist just left me feeling upset and confused. My 1st daughter was born at home with no problems but i was thinner then, i just struggled to lose weight after she was born.
