I had my first official prenatal visit today with my Midwife. First of all let me say WOW! The last meeting was to do paperwork etc and she came here. This time we went to her office in her home. She told me the care I would recieve with them would be very different then what I was used to and BOY WAS SHE Right!! We spent 2 hrs there, going over things, and chatting. And of coarse we listened to the baby, and did the urine sample, and drew blood, and weighed in. And all the fun stuff. But we chatted and laughed. It was more like meeting with a friend then meeting with a Dr or something. Very awesome.
So anyway I had this one question I wanted to ask..JUST ONE, on my mind. And then I completely forgot to ask!! I am gonna email her but figured I would ask here too! We are planning a waterbirth this time. My last homebirth wasn't exactly planned, so I just delivered in my most comfortable position. So anyway I am trying to kinda get a plan of where to set everything up and where to deliver. I have a very large bedroom, so I can easily deliver with room in there. And we can set up the tub in there, but its not exactly right next to our bathroom. Our bathroom, closet, etc are like around the corner. So I am trying to think, how would we fill it up.
So I guess my question is, how did you fill your tub?? And did you have your tub in the most convenient place to fill whether it had a bed near or not, or did you chose the place you put the tub, where there was also a bed?
Hope that makes since!! And sorry so long, been a long exciting day and I am talkative :)
