TGHEALTHYMOM Posted February 21, 2012 Share Posted February 21, 2012 Hello, I have had so many bad experiences ( PTS) now I am thinking of at least doing most of my laboring at home, and was thinking about a home birth, but can't find anyone to help. I still want a good book or DVD to help me prepare in case I don't make it to the hospital. I have been tortured, and prefer not to be induced, but have been a few times with no pain med's... I do not want an epidural unless there are complications and a very long labor. This is our 8th living child, and I have loved the totally natural labor and births I have had ( the best was with an RN) and she was more like a doula / midwife rolled into 1! The Dr. was there but when she called him, he did not come. Never have I had a really good midwife to say the least. And they made it illegal for them to deliver in the hospital, plus the hospital that is 5 minutes away does not deliver anymore. So, I have about a 45 minute drive, and I usually have alot of fierce pain, and go to the hospital too soon. Circumstances that don't help are a very anxious husband who freaks out and no one to help with our other children. Since my dad died, my mom has shown her true colors and refused to help at all. She is upset that I have more than 1 child.... and I love her, but can't ask her for anything. So, I want to be prepared either way. Thanks for any recommendation.:001_smile: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
