Hi hun, can I just say with the brth plan that even though you stipulate who you want to cut the cord, they may not listen to you if you have a c-section.

I didnt want a c-section but ended up with an emergency one and in my birth plan I said I wanted DH to cut the cord and also to have skin on skin asap. At the antenatal class, the midwife made out that all this was possible even if you had an emergency c-section, however I didnt get any of it Sad

I was really upset that I didnt get this and I didnt get to hold Harry until I was taken through to the recovery area. I know Dave got to hold him but it wasnt the same.

I dont want to put you off or upset you by telling you it might not be possible but I dont want you to feel upset if it doesnt happen for you.

xx

Women used to have twins ,triplets etc. all the time naturally before the days of routine scans and the first surviving set of sextuplets were born naturally to a woman who thought she was just having one baby Shocked It's amazing what your body can do , I've seen some lovely home water births of footling breech twins on the internet (thanks Julie x) completely hands off just came out into the water on their own Maria lovely to watch but most medical professionals would tell a woman she was crazy for even attempting that sort of birth xx

You CAN get the birth you want, but you have to know what you want, and how to get it.

Being informed, proactive and assertive will help you all the way. The mw's and consultants are there to ADVISE you. You have the final say in anything. Its your body - your choice.
If you are informed you can make the right decisions for YOU. IGNORE hospital policy - its there mainly to protect from lawsuits.

Most consultants have never seen a normal physiological birth with NO interventions - they are surgeons - they operate.

There was a lady on ICAN that VBAC'd triplets at home.... so yes, in the UK and USA the HCPs would have been insisting on a CS at 34 weeks....
A home birth would be a BIG no no in the UK - the Cons would be having kittens PMSL Laughing never mind a VBAC.

Have a look at ICAN its a great site Smile

Hi maria

Only just seen this thread.......

I havent really put too much thought into the labour really. I am so glad they are both head down though as i can go for a normal delivery. I was going to opt for an epidural incase i have to have a cs in an emergency. However from speaking to a midwife, she said that if you do have an epidural...there is more chance of having to have a cs then. I am open to any pain relief really, i had gas and air and pethidine with Jack, although, the pethidine just made me so spaced out so i dont think i will be having that again. If possible i would like skin to skin asap and for my oh to cut both cords. But my main 'want' is for my boys to arrive safe and well so however that may be i'm not too fussed about the details.

xxxxx
