My husband has agreed to a homebirth!!! I am very excited. We went to the hospital yesterday that I would be delivering in and met one of the 4 drs that could deliver our baby. DHs exact words were "Over my dead body will you deliver in this place."
We were told that because I will be VBACing (I have had a successful VBAC already) they will not allow me certain things and some things are mandatory. Among the mandatory things were continual monitoring (which means no walking around except in the labor room,) IV, once contractions hit a certain point they put an intra uterine monitor and scalp monitor. and If I need a c-section for any reason, that they feel is relevent, They will put me under general, and DH wouldnt be allowed into the room and it would take at least 2 hours before I would be able to hold the baby. Important thing is that DH finally agreed to the homebirth. And we found a midwife that our insurance will reimburse us for, only 80%, but still awesome!!
What are somethings that you had at your homebirth that you are glad you did? Or some things that might have made it go easier?
