Hi and welcome, spicemum! We are due on the same day Well let's hope they decide to come a few days either side so we can enjoy christmas! I'm actually being quite optimistic and having chrissy day lunch with all our family at our place, we'll see how it goes
I'm sorry to hear about your difficult previous birth experiences. It seems a lot of us find the home birth path after suffering traumatic births. My daughter was also a very difficult labour, got stuck because I couldn't push (epidural) and was delivered by vacuum extraction.
Let's hope we both get wonderful, peaceful and intervention-free christmas home births this time
