So I'm still struggling with my options for prenatal/birth care.
I live 35 minutes from the hospital. Some MWs won't take me because of that. there's a dr who will attend the birth, but he doesn't really do prenatal care.
I'd really like to get some thoughts on how far is really too far from a hospital for a safe home birth - or possibly an unassisted birth (let's just throw that out there for a possibility, even though it's my last choice.) I don't expect any complications, but I don't want to be stupid either, there are a couple of emergencies that have no warning signs and a few minutes can make all the difference.
do any of you know of specific stabilizing procedures/supplies that should be prepared for those rare cases?
