So, I have been considering going for a HBA5C providing I could find someone to attend my birth. And I have been praying like mad!! I decided that if this is something that I was meant to do, than God would open the doors and make it possible for me to have a home birth.
Well, he has opened doors!!!
While my midwife here where I live is unable to attend me, she completely supports me doing it and says I could do it if any one can! She gave me the name of a midwife to check into that she says would be my best bet with my number of sections. (I won't be disclosing her name for legal reasons)
This midwife just happens to live where my parents do, so even though I will have to travel to another province to see her I will be able to stay with my parents. She is completely supportive of me having a home birth and doesn't see any reason why I shouldn't be able to push my baby out! What made it possible for her to attend me is that she did NOT register with the midwife association, which means she doesn't have to follow all the guidelines and restrictions that registered midwives have to follow. However, that does mean, that I would have to pay out of pocket, which would usually be about $3,500 - $4,000. I figured we'd find some way to pay it. But-YAY- she isn't going to charge me anything!!! She is offering me her once a month community birth that she would usually attend. Just one she attends for the good of the community, and she said, considering what I've been through, I get to have that birth!!!
So it looks like, when I get to 39 weeks, I'll make the two day drive out to my parents and wait to have my baby at my parents place!!
I am so excited and relieved by the turn of events. I am so happy that I finally will get a real shot at having a natural delivery!
My goal now: Grow a healthy baby and get out to my parents place before going into labour!
Please pray that I have a healthy pregnancy and that all goes well! Baby doesn't arrive until the end of February, so I have a ways to go yet, but the more prayers the better!!
