So I never got prenatal care when I was pregnant. I also never went to the doctors either. I started labor naturally, my water broke naturally and by the time I went to the hospital to give birth I only had about 15mins before my 1st daughter was born.

My children are healthier than most kids their age(and even younger/older).

ETA: And I was actually told by my delivering doctor had I received prenatal care and known I was having twins she said the stress alone probably would of caused me to go into pre-term labor. So while it wasn't "very smart" I did save my children and myself from unnecessary medical problems(her exact words).

What was your plan if you had placenta previa?

Is that a serious question?

Did you have to deal with CPS?


I have unassisted births but I do some formal prenatal care with an OB so that I don't have to worry about CPS in case I needed to transfer.

Cool.

Do you not go to the doctor for paps or anything?

I don't blame you. People did it for centuries. I personally couldn't do it.. for fear of something going wrong during the pregnancy.

Yes. Many moms who UP also UC. Unless you just couldn't afford prenatal car?

Why are you bragging about this? Not ever getting pre natal care is a serious danger. You're just lucky, that's all. Bragging about this does not make you seem better than anyone. It makes you sound ignorant.

 Do you count your lucky stars that you were someone without a comlication? That your actions didnt result in your children not making it?
