Going Unassisted in Feb 2014

I live in rural GA where there are no HB midwives anywhere near.  My DH is a Navy Corpsman and was very hands-on during our previous HB (attended by professionals) in CA.  Now that we're home and pregnant again, we'll be going unassisted.  Any advice for preparation (besides the blatant obvious)?  TIA!

This week, we hired a doula!  She's young (only attended 5 births) and is super-stoked about helping with our home birth.  We're stoked to have her support, too.

The group birth is normal has a lot of research and support I would start there!

Birth is normal is great! The fb group by the same name is better!

Good luck. I'm not sure I could do an UC but then again, we surprise ourselves sometimes.

I just had a UC in May. :)  It was tons of FUN! :D  If you have any questions you can ask me. My preparation was very minimal, lol.

If I may ask, what was your prep all about?

Will you be doing an UP as well as an UC?

Not much prep. :)  Just had a pool and some towels.  Should have gotten WAY more towels, though. :P  Lol.  Oh, and I did a TON of research.  Here's a favourite: http://www.unhinderedliving.com/variations.html
