I had my son in hospital 19months ago, I had no problems, was very comfortable and was planning on staying in for 3 days but then left 17 and a half hours after the birth because I don't like hospitals.
I am planning a Home Birth with this baby (hopefully a girl they weren't 100% from the scan) due 9th July 2009 because of having no problems but when I tell people what I'm planning on they turn around and either call me crazy or braver than them.
I dont see any difference between have a baby in a unit with only Midwives and at home with Midwives. Also I'm not wanting to leave my son for long and if I was to go into hospital I would only have my partner with me but my mam was also with me for the birth of my son so I'm wanting her there again and as she only lives along the road with my younger sister, if it gets to much for my son he's only a minute walk away being looked after by my sister.
The only thing that may go against me is the fact Im anemic but am taking iron tablets. Im just wondering if anyone else has had similar things said to them or had a baby at home when anemic??
