My Mood:
Birth Partners and fear.

Okay this is definitely NOT my first baby and all of them have been vaginal and the last 3 have been all natural (I did the epidural and such with my first 2 but decided I wanted to do it on my own after that).

Now the problem, my mom has been my birth coach for all of my kids. My DH is scared of needles and blood and while he is there the whole time he gets nervous and doesn't know what to do. He stands quietly in a corner (This is NOT a quiet man. LOL) Anyway while there is a very real possiblity that this baby will come early due to issues I have had this pregnancy and previous pregnancies I am not due until July 31. My mom is leaving for England July 9-26th all of my aunts and uncles are going also (it was my grandpas Christmas gift to them) anyway I won't have a birth partner per say. And I am scared. I'm not sure I can do this on my own. I know one of my really good friends/cousin would be there for me but I am not sure I feel comfortable with her in the room (I kind of turn into a witch during labor). What if I can't do this on my own? I thought of looking into like a hypnobabies program or something but I don't know anything about it. What would you do? If the baby comes as early as the doctor and specialists are saying (he is going to start checking me at 32 wks and because of previous issues as soon as he feels the baby is ready he will induce. My induced labors have been horrible) then my mom will be home but honestly I would rather wait until the baby is ready rather than to early. I have had 2 preemies in the past and both have had issues with nursing and ended up hospitalized.
