    Thank you, I really did not know that! I just always assumed I'd never have a home birth because I can't afford one. Is there a hospital you still go to for antinatal classes that's aware of your pregnancy though etc?

    Nah I'm in the school of thought that we don't need to be taught to give birth, the knowledge is already inside and you just need to tap into it and let it out, for example- no one teaches animals to give birth and most vetanarians know that animals just need privacy, an environment they feel safe in and no interruptions

    I didn't have any regular care provider for this pregnancy, I saw a GP once because I wanted a referral for the 20 week scan and I went to my cities main public maternity hospital when I had spotting around 27 weeks (I had a low lying placenta at my 20 week scan) but it was all good and they didn't know why I spotted, I also went for a non-stress test at 41 weeks at the same hospital.

    You can obtain a birth cirtificate without seeing a medical person but it can be a long lengthy process and a bit of paperwork. I chose to take my placenta in with me after the birth to the same hospital (took the baby too!) and they filled out a notification of case attended form with the details of my labor/birth examined my placenta and registered the birth on some hospital network, gave me me NOCA number and we went straight to BDM filled out the birth certificate and got it 3 working days later. I took it into Medicare to register her and then took it into centerlink as well.

    Very imformative. I'll file all that info away in my brain for when I have more babies. I don't think I can get the image of you carrying your placenta to hospital out anyway!
