- Jul 20, 2005Hi,
I am a mum of two expecting #3 in the new year. I am planning my first
homebirth, but it hasnt exactly been a raging success and I have just fired
my midwife who seems to feel its ok to ignore my calls and just ring
whenever it might suit her - even if it is weeks after I first called, or
she promised to call back. So, I find myself in the unexpected and daunting
position of now planning not only my first homebirth, but an unassisted oe
at that. I joined hoping that I might find some useful advice and info and
support from ladies who are in my position, or who have been there done that
and know the ropes, so to speak.
I am wondering why other mums choose to birth unassisted, any problems
people have run into, did anyone or is anyone using a doula? My DH is more
than a little upset about UC, he could only just get around a homebirth with
midwife, so I'm thinking a doula might help?
Otherwise, I am not Jewish, though I have been looking into it for awhile
with the thought of maybe converting, but it is a journey our family is
working thru together, slowly but surely, so I'm looking forward to chatting
with some Jewish mums too!
