I don't know if intervention is the right word as with my first two births were low or no intervention (not sure what people class as intervention) i was monitored and 'checked' both times and also had my waters broken both times but that's it.
I am due in April with no.3 and I don't want to be monitored for very long (first two I was stuck to a bed for an hour checking hb and contractions) I'm expecting this birth to only be a couple of hours long and I want to be active for as much of it as possible.
I don't want to be 'checked' or have my waters broken this time either. I feel like I know my body better then anyone and I can tell how far I am and when I need to push with our some one checking and telling me.
I'm going through the public system and I can just see the look on the midwives face when I tell her I don't want to be checked. Should I right a birth plan? Do they even look at them when you go public? Am I being reasonable? Would love to hear from people who have done this and were you supported by the hospital? Are there any risks if bub is born in the sac?
