I've played around with the idea of a homebirth since the beginning of this pregnancy. Mark wasn't so keen at first but did say that if we moved house and had a bigger space he would be open to talking about the idea. With our house move just around the corner the topic of a homebirth came up.
I never actually thought that we would move to somewhere bigger before baby boy came so a homebirth was always just a lovely idea that I had in my head, now it could become a possibility my brain is working overtime to try and think about if this is something that I would want to do.
I just wanted to record my current thoughts and feelings.
*If a hospital was needed there is one literally 2 minute drive away from our new house so that makes me feel more at ease just incase.
*I'm worried about having the baby during the night and waking Paige up. I know Mark would be there to sort her out if she woke up but it would be an added pressure I guess.
*Would I be able to have a birthing pool? What about mess? What about pain relief?
I have these and many other questions rushing around my head. I need to speak to my midwife and do a bit of research and see what it is that we want to do.
If you had a homebirth I'd love to know how it went, good or bad!
