    From today all women have to be given the option of a home birth!

    I now just have to work out how to talk the husband into it....

    Technically they did before. The NHS have always had a duty to provide you with a midwife wherever you choose to give birth. It's just that in some places they've made it very difficult to obtain, probably relying on the fact that a lot of pregnant women won't be up to the fight at a time when they're fairly vulnerable.

    Well done Abbie! What beautiful pictures, glad you got the experience you deserved :)

    Btw, did you use hypnosis at all? Interested to know.

    Aren't there some cases though when it shouldn't be an option? Like, if monther and/or baby are having problems and will need professionals and equipment to make sure they survive?

    Well, for higher risk women I doubt it would be offered as her care would normally be referred to an OB. Having said that, even low-risk doesn't mean no-risk, but so long as women are aware of the risks and benefits of birthing in each setting and can make an informed decision from that information, she should be able to decide what setting is right for her. I wouldn't mind discussing it further in another thread perhaps?

    Without meaning to sound really thick, what advantages are there of having a home birth rather than a hospital birth?

    You don't catch MRSA?

    One-on-one midwife care. Less likely to need pain relief, less likely to have any interventions, you're in a familiar setting, labour tends to be shorter as women are in a familiar environment to them so they're not going to have so much adrenaline buzzing around them, which slows labour down etc

    If I'd had a homebirth I doubt the little guy would have been here, especially over here. He got stuck, the contractions stopped and they had to give me a citocin thingumy drip. If I was over here I'd have been stuck in a helicopter and probably wouldn't have made it in time.
    I'm not planning on having another kid but if I do it'll be in the hospital again!
