What are your labour plans?
What is everyone planning for labour?
As of right now we are still doing a home birth. However, we were told we need to do a consult with an OB first to get the OK because of my hystereoscopy last October to remove a uterine septum. The midwife wants to have the OB review my surgery notes from the fertility clinic and all the rest of my file to see if I'm at risk of anything because of the surgery. I still don't have a date for that consult yet (not even sure they will want to see me or if it's just a file consult done by the midwife).
I am already borderline being out of the home birth category for other reasons. First for age as I'm 35 in October (they don't want FTM doing home birth after 35). I also have a few fibroids and fibroids can cause heavy bleeding after birth which can't be handled at home well.
If we do have to do a hospital birth, I am CLUELESS! I've never in my life considered a hospital birth. I almost went to school to be a midwife years ago and going back to highschool I always said I would only do a home birth if possible. It's such a foreign concept to me! I just hope we get to do it at home!
I'm also worried about reaching DH if I go into labour while he's at work. He is always away from his desk and he starts a new job in October. He never remembers to charge his phone either. You would think with two cells (work and personal) he would answer but he never does! I should get his manager's number just in case....
