My friend who was hoping for a home birth ended up going to the hospital, having 2 episiotomies, then still having to go in for a c sectionn (her cervix is only big enough to birth a 3-4 lb baby).
anyway.... once they got inside of her there was so much merconium that the baby, placenta, and everything else inside of her was totally stained green. Her 8 lb baby is now in the nicu because there was so much merconium in his lungs.
Has anyone else been through this? Was your baby okay? Any long term side effects?
The midwife saw that her water had merconium, but said that it was normal. It was about 12 hours after that they went to the hospital.
