Re: Question about fast labors
My labors are very, very fast. With #2 it was a planned home birth and the doc only made it with 7 minutes to spare. #3 was an unintentional unassisted birth because it was so fast.
For labor planning I go over "what-ifs" with DH. He knows to just let me be for the most part if things are going ok. We keep the phone close by in case 911 needs to be called. I bought a home birth kit that has all of the essentials in it. DH knows how to help guide baby out, check for a cord around the neck, suction baby's nose and mouth, etc. It helps that I have a DH who is not squeamish at all and I can stay very level headed even in high stress situations (though none of births were scary).
