  • Has anyone decided against the use of a Midwife and opted for a homebirth without anyone's assistance?

  • well, ummm, yep

    you never act as your own care provider and when pg, well..we all know about pregnant brain

    so I never count my own births in the number of births attended. Shea was caught by his daddy because we didn't have time to call for assistance..that's our story and we're sticking to it!

    seriously we live 1 mile from the closest emergency medical assistance and we wouldn't have hesitated to call for assistance. we also have some medical equipment on hand with the experience to use it.

  • I don't think I would have a problem going unassisted, but I think my dh would freak out without a MW there.
