My Sister in Law wants a home birth(it's getting to really be a pattern for Dh's family). She is an obese woman with pre-diabetes before she got pregnant and she's not really interested in giving up her ice cream.
I'll look around a bit more online but other then the one's I'm familiar with(ie shoulder dystocia, macrosomia,stillbirth,neonatal hypoglycemia). Are there any other risks specifically from her obesity and or diabetes?
I'm just trying to make a list of supplies for my EMT bag to take since several of the women in the family are going out there to support her for the last 4-6 weeks.
