    if someone said that to me I would be likely to tell them that its them that is going to die if they came back into the room and ask for another midwife

    as you know their is a huge difference between constant monitoring and not being monitored at all, you are not refusing any monitoring just being stuck on a bed from what it seems

    Yes - I am happy to be monitored from time to time etc but having been totally active in the last birth I just couldn't go back to the on the bed thing - really just want to be left alone, lol!

    (ps I am not even pregnant, just thinking ahead )

    Funny how we have these thoughts sometimes, getting BFP first might also be an idea

    looking back now constant monitoring is a setup for disaster

    I don't know about RBH but although the Mater has baths in the labour rooms they are not birthing baths. Officially they don't do water births, however, there are instances where the mother is so far advanced that she can't get out of the bath and ends up birthing in th ebath. The baths are pretty small though, I can't imagine they would offer much in the way of pain relief as a birthing pool would.
