We just arrived in Australia from NZ and I am pregnant with my third child. With every child I asked about homebirths but all the midwives were very vague and said there was no one they knew of who did them. Now with this baby due in 4 weeks its the only way again I feel comfortable with, especially since we have no car and no one we know here yet. I really don't fancy hopping into a taxi or an ambulance at the critical point of the labour after waters have broken etc and break all my concentration. It will just stress me out, especially since i want my husband to be with me and the kids will be in and out of hospital room with disaproving looks from drs and nurses. No thankyou, i feel way more comfortable just being home and going through the labour and birth on my own. I told my husband to ring the ambulance once head or whole baby is out.
