Okay sooo the theory goes that each labour gets faster, right? Sophie took 8h, Maddie took 90mins... I'm anticipating this baby being even faster. I want to labour at home, but I have an irregular heartbeat so I dont think they will let me given that I need iron after birth. Im a 10 mins car ride from the hospital, not including cab wait times as we dont drive. What would you do here? If I need after birth help with iron or bloods, will the midwives call an ambulance to the hospital (if I homebirth?) for postnatal care? In middlesbrough, they sweep you at 38weeks. Could I ask for the sweep to be in hospital so I can stay til labour? ARGH!
