    Yay! It sounds like you guys are all set!

    Isn't it funny how different OB care and MW care are? They are treating the same condition (your pregnancy) but with completely different attitudes. I'm so excited for you that you get to experience a midwife managed pregnancy!

    KUP, it sounds like you are making progress!!

    I am so ready to have this baby! I know that the last couple of weeks are important, especially since I tmake small babies. I want to be lovingly patient, but I want to meet my baby too! Stupid hormones...

    I have an appointment with the midwife tomorrow and then my OB on Friday. Up until this point, I haven't told my OB that I won't be delivering in the hospital. I am choosing to birth at home. And I would like to continue seeing this doctor after baby is born. So knowing that I don't live in a midwife friendly state, what would you do? Should I say something to doc? Or do I just wait until baby is born, call and say "oh yeah well, I need to cancel my prenatal appt -we had the baby at home" I like this doctor and her staff too. So I don't want to offend.

    What would you do?


    Oh and I was at the pediatrician's office with my sick boy. I mentioned to doc that we were going to have this baby at home, and asked how soon after birth would he like to see baby. OMG! You should have seen his face LOL His eyes got all big. I guess he doesn't see that very often. But he said, the sooner the better. And he asked if someone, like a midwife or something, would be there to check baby at birth. I said yes. It was funny.

    It might be a good idea to talk to your ob about it. At the end of the day it is your decision. Good luck!

    What does your MW say about telling the OB? IS homebirth frowned on in your area or is it illegal? If it is illegal and you tell the OB you are planning on it he may have to make a report to someone. I would get input from the MW.

    It's good that your pediatrician will see the baby after a homebirth. In our area there are practices who refuse to treat home birth babies. Something about homebirth babies being exposed to ... something.. IDK, it's weird. I was lucky in that DS's pediatrician didn't bat an eye when I told her we were birth at home and just told us to call the day he is born and make an appt. for the next day. She said if it is over the weekend and there is an emergency to go to the ER. She was confidant that our MW could identify any problems that needed immediate attention.

    Anyway, KUP, hope you have a good MW appt today.

    You may also get dismissed by the practice if you admit your home birth. Our pedi was awesome too and we got Derek and Daniel seen at about 48 hours.

    That is a tricky situation with the midwife and OB, for sure. Depending if its actually illegal or not, I might err on the side of caution too like Melissa said. Maybe talk to your midwife about it first to see what she says and go from there!

    I have no advice on telling the OB, but it sounds like the previous posters had good points. I'm glad the pedi is fine with seeing a homebirth baby.
