    Yes to intubation, it is in the resus kit, as well as a full tank of oxygen.

    Yes the hospital will accept me a) no hospital can refuse anyone brought in by ambulance. B) im going through a publically funded HB program attached to a hospital. They are fully aware who i am and my plans for a homebirth

    If anything it would be faster because you can call ahead and they can have the theatre or whatever else ready and prepped.

    What's wrong with finding your own experience special?

    I don't understand why women can't talk about it, whether it be a positive or negative experience?

    My friends and I talk about our births all the time. Some special, some bloody strong amazing women, some sad. Difference is I guess, we don't judge and wouldn't scoff if one in our group had a birth plan or had a plan for her placenta.

    There is nothing wrong with talking about it, being happy/sad about it, rejoicing in it or whatever, its when certain women look down their noses the way others have birthed that the problem arises.

    A midwife is not anywhere near as qualified as a dr is but is qualified to care for normal low risk pregnancies.

    Half the drs probably don't have any idea, they float in and out, midwives are there the whole birth and IMO they would see and exprience much more and I would trust a midwife over a DR.

    I'm unsure if this whole idea of competition stems from people being smug or people being jealous? I mean why else would you care either way how someone else birthed their baby?

    I do agree with this. I don't have a problem if a woman felt empowered or special because of her own experience.

    I also think that turning down a nose at someone includes their birth plan and wishing for them to fail so we can pull the old 'told you so'.

    Which is exactly what Mia did, she is looking down on those who has done it differently.
