- Jul 25, 2005welcome to the group! hope to chat with you some time. **hugs**'
As for me, I used nobody in my birth. I felt better off alone.. but
if you feel like wanting someone with you, its *up* to you as you
have to listen to yourself...
I chose unassisted homebirth because in my experience with my first
baby, the attendants weren't helpful. they were bothering me all of
the time with their checkups, and forcing me to birth on my back. I
wouldn't want anyone to time my concractions and put time limits on
the birth process. This makes me so nervous! If I will take too
long, they might use interventions to hurry things along, and its
painful and dangeorus! Also there are law limits on birthing. If
your baby is breech they wouldn't deliver you. They would use c-
section (after attempting to turn down the baby)
In my own case, I had marginal previa, and some bleeding. I knew
they wouldn't let me birth normally. They would be too nervous and
might use interventions and protocols.. I felt safer to stay home
You can message me on yahoo if you want, my screen name
is 'nurturinghome'. Hope to hear from you soon!
