Re: Anyone else planning a free birth??
This will be our 6th home birth I would really like a UC but DH doesn't feel comfortably. I'm secretly willing that the midwives will arrive just after our LO does... that happened with our 4th and it was just lovely.
I am talking to our midwife at our next prenatal about my desire for her to be totally "hands off" and waiting at a distance while the baby is born and I'm bringing our LO up to my chest (DH is OK with this). I'm fine with more active help with the 3rd stage, but I want that intimate time of pushing and bringing up my baby to be totally me and DH - no flashlights, hands, etc!
