Hi I am just wondering, freebirthers, how do u know, if it happens, that something is wrong? How do u know when u need hospital or the ambulance? As silly as it sounds sometimes I have little fantasies of just giving birth by myself, & even if I was in hospital I would want 2 run & hide & do it myself. Not that its an issue for me right now LOL but u never know in the future I guess. The thing that scares me is something going wrong & not realising fast enough. So how do u know? Can u still have an unassisted birth if u just have a midwife quietly in the corner 'in case'?
