|10-2-2011 - Good news! :)
||My mood while writing this blog:|
I went to see the midwife yesterday and everything went well, baby's heartrate was good etc. Then I mentioned to her that I really wanted a water birth this time and wasn't keen on giving birth in the consultant led unit of the hospital. - Our hospital has just built a new midwife led unit for women to give birth in, it's a bit like a birthing centre. The atmosphere is much more relaxed than in the hospital and the rooms are bigger and more private with more equipment like birthting pools and balls etc.
I was going to have to give birth in the consultant led part where I had Emma because of my miscarriage history but I really wasn't keen on that as there were so many people in the room when I had her and people coming in and out, I felt like an exhibition. Anyway when I told the midwife that she said as I'd never had any complications with birth before and I was only consultant led because of the miscarriages it probably wouldn't be a problem. I just have to tell the consultant at my 36 week appointment that I want to give birth in the new part of the hospital and she'll discharge me from her care so I'll have a normal birth next time! =) I'm so excited and really hope the consultant will discharge me (although I can't see why she wont, especially if I tell her my midwife thinks it will be okay!) Hopefully this time I wont have strep B either so I wont be hooked up to an IV and I can move around and go where I want to go when I'm in labour....SO looking forward to it this time around! Lol.
Hope you're all well, belly rubs and baby dust.

- Thursday, 10 Feb Hi hayley! Its sounds like a really good plan. I was watching some videos and reading up with regards to water birth.. It sound and looks more enjoyably in some way then normal birth. My husband actual recommended it and we have been thinking about having water birth as well. However we not sure if our hospital provides water birth. But good luck hope your plan goes well..
